One of the best episodes!
23 March 2009 | by jgrv-1See all my reviews

This episode really is one of the best. It addresses prejudice, racism and hatred. When an Indian man is murdered for no apparent reason, his Caucasian wife returns to Walnut Grove with her son. Because he's an "Injun," he's rejected by his grandfather, as well as most of the townspeople and their children. The grandfather goes so far as to make up a story that the boy is adopted and not his actual grandchild.

George Murdock as the grandfather is sensational, as is young Caesar Ramirez as the half-Indian boy who is taunted and ridiculed by his schoolmates. If this episode fails to stir emotion in you, then you were probably born without a heart! It's worth the watch.
