'Little House on the Prairie' reunion: The cast remembers life in Walnut Grove

'Little House on the Prairie' reunion: The cast remembers life in Walnut Grove
In 1974, TV audiences were introduced to the Ingalls family, a frontier clan living in a rustic cabin in the Minnesota wilderness during the 1870s and '80s. America was in the middle of its Me Decade, with an exhausting war and general upheaval at home.
