33. AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW
December 10, 1975
While fishing in a stream, Laura and her friend think they’ve found gold. Laura is excited by the thought of all the wonderful things she would be able to buy for her family. They spends several weeks sifting the stream for gold in secrecy. Laura has fantasies of Walnut Grove becoming Ingallsville because of her wealth and she dreams of riding in a white horse drawn carriage wearing a fancy white dress. She also dreams of living in a beautiful white castle. When they try to cash in, they learn it’s fool’s gold.
