I started reading On the Banks of Plum Creek, and Laura talks about a big, high, flat rock that they climbed up onto to watch the cattle go by. I was watching a few YouTube videos about people visiting the site of the Plum Creek dugout, near Walnut Grove. And they talk about the "big rock", and show a low, flat rock sitting half in the creek. Looks like a nice rock to step out on and fish.
But the rock in the book was a high rock that was in the prairie by the stable, not on the side of the creek. And it at least sounds bigger than the rock shown in the videos. So I'm wondering what is going on here. Is the creek rock a different rock that is talked about later in the book (I'm still in the early chapters).
Did a farmer break up the rock because it was in his way on his land? Did he transport it down to the creek somehow and throw it in? Has the creek shifted its path since then? Did Laura exaggerate or make up the field rock? And why do they call the creek rock the "big rock" that Laura talks about in the Plum Creek book? Does anyone know what happened to the rock? Especially for those posters who may have visited the site.
