How did the Homestead Act 1862 affect Laura Ingalls Wilder's life as a young girl?

The Homestead Act was the reason her family was able to move west. It allowed her to see a lot of the country, as her Pa tried three times - in three separate places - to take advantage of the homestead act. From age 12 to 18, it put her in the position of a "partner" with her Pa (and Ma and sisters) to make good on "the bet with Uncle Sam" . Her sister died.
