The adventures continue for Laura Ingalls and her family as they leave their little house in the Big Woods of Wisconsin and set out for Kansas. They travel for many days in their covered wagon until they find the best spot to build their little house on the prairie. Soon they are planting and plowing, hunting wild ducks and turkeys, and gathering grass for their cows. Sometimes pioneer life is hard, but Laura and her folks are always busy and happy in their new little house.
Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 in the log cabin described in Little House in the Big Woods. She and her family traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest. Later, Laura and her husband, Almanzo Wilder, made their own covered-wagon trip with their daughter, Rose, to Mansfield, Missouri. There, believing in the importance of knowing where you began in order to appreciate how far you've come, Laura wrote about her childhood growing up on the American frontier. For millions of readers Laura lives on forever as the little pioneer girl in the beloved Little House books.Garth Williams began his work on the pictures for the Little House books by meeting Laura Ingalls Wilder at her home in Missouri, and then he traveled to the sites of all the little houses. His charming art caused Laura to remark that she and her family "live again in these illustrations."

It's hot and dry and the Indians are fun to see for little Laura. But the indians start multiplying. Pa says that the neighbors say they are planning on destroying the 'White Men' from their land. One night as Laura is lying asleep, she awakes with a start to a dreadful, hair-prickling, blood-curdling cry. Pa calls it, the Indian War Cry.
Q: What do the hardcovered Little House books look like? Are they plain books with decorated dust jackets or no dust jackets with a nice cover?
The artwork seen in the picture is a slipcover. There is a gold imprint of a log cabin and fence on the front of the cover, but that is the primary decoration on the actual book.
