In this episode from the television series Little House on the Prairie, Charles and Caroline Ingalls (Michael Landon and Karen Grassle) are traveling with their daughters, Laura (Melissa Gilbert), Mary (Melissa Sue Anderson), and Carrie (Lindsay Greenbush), when they're caught in the middle of a freak blizzard. Seeking shelter in an abandoned cabin, the Ingalls family soon discovers they have no food, and Charles ventures out to find provisions. As he searches for food, Charles finds a Sioux Indian and a lost traveler; the Indian, who for some reason never speaks, helps to save the family, but Charles finds he has to defend the Indian against the racist taunts of the other man he helped to rescue.
