The novel on which this telefilm was based, 'Young Pioneers' was written by Rose Wilder Lane, the daughter of Laura Ingalls Wilder, who wrote the books on which _"The Little House on the Prairie" (1974)_ was based. See more »
I saw this on TV when I was 14 years old and loved it. Years later I was lucky enough to be able to get a VHS copy that I watch several times over the course of the holiday season. There is no high drama here, just a very sweet and corny, old fashioned story of a young pioneer couple trying to survive on the prairie. If you enjoy the Little House series then this will delight you.
The acting can be a bit over the top, there is a very young Robert Hayes and Linda Purl in the starring roles. One thing that strikes me every time I see this is the way they were able to make so much with so little. Living in this time would have been quite a challenge.
I would hope someday they would release all the Young Pioneer movies in a box set.
