On the Banks of Plum Creek
When Pa trades Mr. Hanson his horses and wagon for a sod dugout, the Ingalls family finds themselves in their first home in Minnesota. Pa promises that after the harvest of the first wheat crop, the family will have a nice new log cabin right on the banks of Plum Creek. When Pa purchases the new lumber for the house, it is under the agreement that it will be paid for when the wheat crop is sold. Right before the wheat is to be harvested, a strange happening threatens the livelihood of the crops. How will Pa get his family though this hardship?
