This set of 60 DVDs is definitely worth the price. The series is so well done for its time and the stories, based on the novels by Laura Ingalls Wilder, are enthralling. The setting and character struggles are so refreshingly different from today's meager television offerings, and provide children and adults alike a chance to reflect on a simpler time in the "western world's" history. There is much value in understanding our roots and a time before every modern convenience and electronic device served our needs. Beyond this, the stories are character-building, they emphasize valuable societal morals, while being truly entertaining at the same time. No shortage of drama or comedy in this excellent TV series. Quite a treasure!
