The Ingalls, Garveys and Olesons move to Winoka.
12 May 2006 | by tinman19602003See all my reviews

Hardship has struck Walnut Grove and many of the citizens move to other towns to support themselves. Among them are the Olesons, the Garveys and the Ingalls.

In the town of Winoka, Mr and Mrs Oleson obtain work at a saloon, Charles and Caroline are hired to run a restaurant and hotel and Jonathan Garvey obtains employment also. All of them work for Mr. Standish (Leon Charles), who controls the town and is very mean.

Mrs. Garvey attempts to continue the children's lessons, meeting in an empty building also owned by Standish, as there is no school in Winoka. One day, Charles encounters a youngster named Albert (Matthew Laborteaux) who appears to be an orphan or runaway, the boy is very cadgy about divulging his history and Charles accepts him on those terms, attempting to be his friend and encouraging him to go to Mrs. Garvey's school.

Continued in part two of As Long as We're Together.
