This train roughly follows Almanzo through Little Town on the Prairie onward, with a backward stop or two in The Long Winter, ending on the newlywed's front steps in The First Four Years. It was inspired by the LH books, Pioneer Girl (the recently released really-truly-actually biographical Laura Ingalls Wilder publication) and my own pure brain, which first fell head over heels for Almanzo when I was wee. Also inspired by, and named for, Aaron Copland's song The Promise of Living, from "The Tender Land" - here is a lovely performance on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tDAbNaF6EYQ
