Let’s go back to a simpler time. There’s nothing quite like taking a stroll down memory lane and reliving the shows that we so much looked forward to back in the day- today let’s revisit Little House on the Prairie. It was 1974 and America needed The Ingalls. The country was in the midst of a tiresome and controversial war in Vietnam, and a rustic cabin in the wilderness filled with a wholesome family was exactly what we needed.

Although the show followed the life and adventures of a family living on a farm in the late 1800s, the issues they dealt with are still relatable to viewers even today. The show became a big hit right off the bat and will certainly be remembered as one of the greatest shows of all time. The show was based on the best-selling series the Little House Books, which were actually semi-autobiographical, based on the author Laura Ingalls Wilder’s real-life family. Laura lived from 1867 to 1957 and is responsible for creating the book series that would pave the way for several on-screen adaptations.
