Pa revels in his bumper crop of wheat, making the classic mistake of counting his chickens before they hatch, when in rolls a wicked hail storm destroying everything. All wish list items, and Carrie, must be forgotten as Pa says goodbye and begins a 100 mile walk in search of work and wage.
Along the way he befriends two un-creatively named men and forms the "Fellowship of the Wheat". Together they journey to the quarries of Minnesota where they must prove their worth and become the best double jackers in the land if they want to secure prize money for their families before the looming winter storms and threat of starvation arrive at their doorsteps. Meanwhile, Ma rallies the Walnut Grove women folk together in a stirring battle to save the ravaged wheat fields.
Will Pa become the best double jacker in a matter of a few weeks? Will Ma save the day back on the homefront? Will Willa ever stop complaining? Will Amy, Julie, and Marissa solve the biggest mystery on Little House on the Prairie so far? Find out all of this and more on this week's episode.
