Season Six (1979-1980)


November 26, 1979

While Caroline's parents are traveling on the train from the Big Woods to Walnut Grove, Caroline's mother dies. When her father reaches the Ingall's farm, he is in so much grief that he takes to the sod house for weeks. The only person who can get him to come out is Albert, when he invites him to go fishing. While fishing, Caroline's father tells Albert stories about when he was raising his children in the Big Woods. Charles persuades him to write them down but they only problem is that the publisher wants $32.00 to publish the book. The Ingalls work very hard to raise the money, and everyone is happy when the book gets published. Caroline's Pa then returns to the Big Woods as a published author.
