Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the two-hour finale of Little House on the Prairie's third season, the Ingalls family faces yet another crisis when their crops are destroyed. In desperation, Charles Ingalls (Michael Landon) packs up his brood and heads to the nearby gold mines, hoping for better luck. Surprisingly, the family strikes it rich -- and not surprisingly, the sudden influx of wealth all but destroys them. This episode marked the final appearance of Victor French as Mr. Edwards until his return to the series several years later.
