Something I never thought I would say - but just went down the Radames Pera rabbit hole. I never knew he was young "Grasshopper" on Kung Fu.
I also discovered that Landon was going to put the blind story on hold indefinitely and have Mary marry Pera's John. Landon certainly did not follow the books, but hard to imagine he would just completely ignore Mary's blindness. I know people married younger then, but thought it was a bit odd how young Landon had Mary get married. She was about 14 or 15 when they were toying with having her marry John and about 16 when pairing her with Linwood's Adam who was in his twenties. Plus, they really could have just focused on her adjusting to her blindness for a while instead of having her adjust enough to be able to be a teacher within one episode.
Obviously, Laura was going to get involved with Almanzo at some point, but it was still odd how Landon did it. Laura was about 15 but acting like she was twelve running around in braids chasing someone also well into his 20's. Again, I know the age difference was probably accurate, but was always a bit odd watching the young actresses who were still clearly girls play opposite actors who would be arrested if they were with them in real life.
The whole show is kind of an interesting look into Landon's psyche.
I am Landon's desire to see the teenage actresses playing my daughters have romantic scenes with adult men even when in Mary's case, it was not really necessary to the show.
I am also the really close friend who is a guest star in an episode who is never mentioned again.

Karen Grassle (Ma) didn't mince words when reflecting on Michael Landon's on-set antics back then.
It wasn’t long before the rest of the cast and crew discovered the reason behind his boastful claims: The married actor was having sex with most of the cast members under the age of 18 . He was acting like a horny teenager even though he was pushing 50 years old. His libido was certainly off the rails says Grassle. He never even tried to fuck me. Not even once during all of the years we worked together. I was just old seafood to him. Melissa Gilbert didn’t get any either. That kind of made the harsh reality of being rejected because of my age easier to swallow. Mike didn’t like Gilbert’s gray teeth. He said they were a real wood killer.

I know you were probably joking. But there is a history of this.
I found a bunch of ancestors in Iowa when I did my family tree research. When I did, I learned that there was a history of orphan children from big cities like NYC being put on a train and sent to Iowa and the like. Often, families would take a child if the train stopped at their town's train whistle stop.
My family wasn't among the orphans but it was fascinating to read about it. This would have been roughly the era when Little House took place.

She eventually married in her 40s and became a stepmother to her husband's two children.
Her life was a lot more interesting than Laura's...who married a loser just like her father.

South Dakota, beautiful? LOL!
Charles Ingalls stayed in DeSmet because he repeatedly failed to establish himself as a provider for his family across Wisconsin, Minnesota, Kansas and Iowa ... he finally managed to eke out a subsistence in DeSmet, and it was increasingly less easy to pick up stakes again especially given he and Caroline had a blind adult daughter in their care.
The LIW bio "Prairie Fires" paints what seems like an honest portrait of the family, deconstructing all the mythos around them driven by Laura's books and the show. Walnut Grove MN was not the warm, close-knit community portrayed by Landon -- in fact it was a transient town with a lot of unsavory types, and the family, especially Laura, did not like it there.

R202 ‘Prairie Fires’ is a fascinating read because touches on the historical and economic context of the times and doesn’t sugar-coat the Ingalls family. Life was harsh. Pa Ingalls was in the last wave of true frontier settlers, and his family suffered from a series of his bad decisions, bad timing and bad luck. So many dodgy things like illegally settling on Osage land in Kansas to sneaking out of Iowa in the middle of the night due to debts. Pa was constantly in debt, so much so that property had to be later put in Ma’s name. They seemed really susceptible to ‘get rich quick’ kind of schemes. At one point in De Smet well past their prime, he proposed going to Oregon, but Ma put finally her foot down. She had enough and would rather stay in hard bleakness South Dakota than fail yet again. I’m retrospect, they should have really stayed in the Wisconsin Big Woods near Pepin Lake. Their life was the most stable there and had an extended family support.
Laura and Manly followed in the same footsteps with financial ruin in their first year of marriage and then falling for some scheme to move to the Florida panhandle that lasted only for a year. It look them years to recover enough to get their shit together and finally settle in the Missouri Ozarks. The property had to be put in Laura’s name because Manly likely still had outstanding debts. The TV show especially was a fairy tale version, and Laura wasn’t always a very nice person in real life. Fun fact. Despite having five children, Pa has no living descendants. His only grandchild to make it adulthood was Rose (died 1968) who had one stillborn child. Their line has physically died out, but we still talk about them thanks to Half Pint.

In what ways was Laura not a very nice person, R209?
|by Anonymous||reply 210||June 1, 2023 7:47 AM|
R210 She was complex and not as always noble as portrayed in the show. Much of the insight comes from her own daughter Rose. Once Laura chillingly accused a young Rose of taking their hidden stash of money on the road to Missouri when in fact it had fallen down a crack in a desk. They found it three days later. It traumatised Rose for life and Laura refused to speak about it afterwards. There were other stories like how there was a family literally starving after the Panic of 1893, and Laura got angry with Manly when he gave them some salted meat.
As a child Laura was resentful of (before blind) Mary because the elder sister got more attention for her looks and piety. Laura also took pleasure in the failings of her sister in law Eliza Jane, although EJ was supposedly full of herself, including when Eliza Jane became almost destitute.. There’s countless stories of Laura throwing barbs in the book.
They were all racists like most people then. They moved into MN not long after the Dakota War of 1862 that ultimately led to the mass killing or removal of most Native Americans in the state. This mentality carried over to their move to Dakota Territory. Laura and Manly also moved to Mansfield, MO which was a ‘sundown town’.

Here’s the info from “Prairie Fire’ about Almonzo’s parents and their move to Louisiana. I think there were six or seven children in the Wilder family. Google says Almanzo’s mother died in 1905 in Louisiana, so she must have stayed after her husband died in 1899. Both Eliza Jane and the youngest Perley Day Wilder were there. Perley had lots of children, so the Wilders did better than the Ingalls in that regard. Info from Find a Grave that links to the whole family.
“Almanzo’s parents, James and Angeline, and his oldest sibling, Laura, spent that summer with them, stopping in Mansfield on their way south. They had sold their farm in Minnesota and were moving to Crowley, Louisiana, to live with Eliza Jane, who had had lasted only a year or so at her government job. In 1893, at the age of forty-two, she had married Thomas Jefferson Thayer, a widower in his sixties with five grown children and a modest fortune gleaned from his Spring Valley grain elevator. The couple promptly moved to Louisiana and went into rice farming there. Perhaps against his better judgment, the sober and conservative James Wilder had been persuaded to invest much of his wealth—the profits of long years of farming and the proceeds from sales of his Minnesota properties—in the Thayers’ rice farming schemes, which collapsed with the first bad harvest. Eighty-five, thin and frail, the elder Wilder realized that most of his investment would be lost. But he had done what he could for Almanzo, buying the Mansfield home that he and Laura were renting and presenting the deed to his son just before leaving town. He died several months later.”
