Synopsis

Laura and Almanzo Wilder leave their home in South Dakota to seek a better life in Missouri. Laura documents their daily life in her letters home to her parents, Charles and Caroline Ingalls, and late at night writes the stories she will eventually have published. Once they arrive in the small town of Mansfield, the Wilders find a rundown farm house on a parcel of land and use their last $100 to make a down payment. Their plan is to sell firewood, plant apple trees and split the demanding work between them. But Almanzo, physically weak from an earlier illness, is unable to keep up and considers moving back to South Dakota. Laura vetoes that idea and hire Cornelius Loudermilk -- an emotionally damaged local man who lost his home and family to fire -- to help them. Meanwhile, Rose is taunted at school by the local children, but she ultimately discovers her own unique talent and, inspired by her mother, decides that she, too, will become a writer.
