This is a great movie based on the book by Rose Wilder Lane (daughter of Laura Ingalls Wilder). Made for television in 1976 the acting is superb. It tells one of the great stories of our American history and is done with great affection. A definite must for parents - this was recommended by educational groups as a great movie. Also a must for any history buffs as it feels quite real. What makes the movie is the very real relationship between Linda Purl and Roger Kerns. They make the story come to life.

This is the nicest western show I ever saw. Good plot, well chosen actors and actresses, in a convincing and beautiful tale of pioneer life. I could watch it over and over.

A likeable, young, couple heads West in a wagon to start a farm on the Great Plains of the Dakota Territory. Very realistic and accurate.

The couple face hardships and disasters, but make friends, and press on.
Thoughtful and charming.

The sequel film, "Young Pioneers Christmas" is just as good, continues the story, and is even more heart-warming.

I bought the VHS and copied them to DVD. It was worth the effort, because you come away feeling good.

The studios should put these two, excellent, films on DVD today!!

It was as good as I remembered it to be. Romantic and inspirational. My children enjoyed it very much also. We need more of the kind of movies like this that teach good values.

I love this movie. I received it promptly in good condition. I would encourage anyone that likes clean movies set back in pioneer times to get this movie.

Young Pioneers is a fine story of two young people who head to the Dakotas to homestead in the 1870's. A fine story of their lives, one you can watch with anybody. Followed by the sequel Young Pioneers' Christmas.

I saw it a long time ago. I got the ratings reversed on this one and the Young Pioneers First Christmas.

It was worth buying it and seeing it again. The other version is very sad, but did show what life was like back then.

I have not watch it yet, as I was leaving for vacation. I seen it on TV years ago, and have been looking for it a long time. I hope the quality is descent. I wish it had close captions, I think my husband would enjoy it. My only negative T this time. Delivered on time in good condition. It would be 5 stars with close captions for those interested.

I remember seeing this in the mid 70s This is written by the daughter of Laura Ingalls Wilder so if you are a Little House fan you are going to love this. I could not remember the plot because it had been too long. I did remember however how much I enjoyed this
This would be a welcome addition to anyones movie collection and something you would watch over and over.
