Summary
This delightful program opens with Molly Beaton, a pioneer wife, reminiscing to herself about the prior day's events--Christmas Day, 1874. Feeling both secure and thankful in her sod house, Molly begins a flashback narrative which starts in June of that year. She and her husband David buried their only child who was consumed by "the fever." Now they must struggle through their hardships of the death of their child, and being one of the few settlers in the area. Through the support of their very distant neighbors, Molly and David get on with their lives. In turn, they help their neighbors through their own struggles and share a Christmas dinner complete with homemade decorations and very special presents
