Lorie Dorian joins the podcast to discuss this amazing Mr Edwards episode – we learn so much about this character and how funny and tragic he can be.
“While in Mankato, Charles is surprised to find Isaiah Edwards, the mountain man befriended by the Ingalls family on their journey to Minnesota. The two men return to Walnut Grove together to find young Laura sick in bed and a worried Mr. Edwards promises to stay until she recovers. But Mr. Edwards’ deep concern for Laura stems from a devastating personal loss and he cannot forgive the one he holds responsible. Will the Ingalls’ friendship and a budding romance with postmistress Grace Snider help Mr. Edwards come to terms with his past or will he leave Walnut Grove for good?”
Mr. Edwards’ Homecoming originally aired on October 2, 1976
