House on the Prairie Television Series
Season One (1974-1975)
2. COUNTRY GIRLS
September 18, 1974
Laura and Mary attend their first day of school in Walnut Grove. There
they meet Nellie Oleson, who condescendingly refers to them as "country
girls". Not having been to school before, Laura makes an extra effort
with her studies. When she is unable to write the words for an essay about
her Ma, she recites it directly from her heart.
Comment: When viewing later episodes, it's amazing to
see how much the will grow during the course of the series.
