Then I watched this wonderful documentary adding to the movie not only with family photos and heirlooms but on locations and with re-creation acting by location descendants proudly led by the actor who played Laura's husband Almanzo Wilder in the TV series.
The later-years movie and this documentary made me want to watch those TV episodes I missed, and even re-read Laura's books again though written for children but with mature themese and I'd read them now with so much more informed appreciation and deeper emotional engagement like you would your own families' and regions' stories.
I'll be giving the movie and this documentary as gift sets to young and old :)
Laura's books have always been a favorite of my just as the TV series was.
I really loved the fact that Dean Butler who played Almanzo Wilder on the TV Series was the host, he did a great job.
