Storyline

While on their way home to Walnut Grove after a trip to Mankato, the Ingalls family are unexpectedly snowbound, with little food, at a remote mountain cabin by a late-spring blizzard. But a desperate situation soon turns deadly when a renegade U.S. Marshall, blinded by hate, shows up half-frozen at their door, only moments ahead of the man he has vowed to bring back dead: a Sioux Indian chief who has just saved Charles' life.

Prejudice
24 February 2013 | by mitchrmpSee all my reviews

Even though it had been years since the Indian uprising, this man was still after the blood of one lone Indian who's only crime is being born.

The episode starts with the Ingalls family traveling home from Mankato. A Marshal out of Sleepy Eye was looking for the Indian. He warns Charles that a blizzard is coming, but Charles doesn't believe him. Sure enough, a blizzard strikes and they take shelter in an old shack. Times are hard. They don't have much food and Charles faces the fact that he must go out in the bad weather and hunt. He gets caught in the second wave of the blizzard and almost looses his life. Thankfully, an Indian - THE Indian in question - is there to save him.

Meanwhile, that mean Marshal finds the shack. He too is stuck out in the blizzard. When the Indian arrives with Charles, the Marshall arrests him and keeps him held up while they wait out the blizzard.

This episode is a good example of prejudice that can stay with people for many, many years. When Charles questions the Marshal, it becomes apparent that there is really no good reason why he's so against the Marshal. The episode is sweet in that it sheds a good light on the Indian people. I'm not sure how true to the time it is. I doubt people really called President Lincoln Abe Lincoln back then...Well, but we have always called President Clinton Bill Clinton...
