Loved this episode, though seems a bit unrealistic that the whole school had to walk all the way from Winoka to Walnut Grove. First time we find out more about Adam's accident that led to his becoming blind and the scenes with him and Mary are really poignant and touching, some nice acting from Melissa Sue Anderson and Linwood Boomer. Have always loved when the Raschellas wrote Adam and Mary's stories, seemed like they made a real effort to give the actors something meaty to play. Liked how they made Mrs. Oleson more sympathetic by the end and how she ended up treating Eli and took a firmer stand at the end to the prejudiced townsperson at the end.

I can't even imagine Adam's fear of crossing the river in the sling.

The Adam and Mary scenes are so emotional in this one.

Even though this episode was set in the 1860/70s and filmed in the late 1970s, it's hard to accept the blind (no pun intended) racism of Mrs. Oleson and one other of the townsfolk.

Quite heartening in the end, though, when they all make it safely to their new school.

One of the reasons I liked this episode is because, any one where someone gets the best of Harriet Oleson is a good episode

Adam was almost too wimpy in this episode....................
