Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the conclusion of a two-part story, the troubles that have recently beset the Wilders continue unabated. Their crops have already been wiped out by hail, and Almanzo (Dean Butler) has been partially paralyzed in an accident. Now, a tornado destroys the couple's home, injuring Laura (Melissa Gilbert), who has recently given birth. In the depths of depression, Almanzo is ready to give up -- but is suddenly galvanized into a valiant effort to get back on his feet, both figuratively and literally, with the help of Laura's father, Charles (Michael Landon).
