Product Description

It was 1894 when Laura Ingalls Wilder, her husband, Almanzo, and their daughter, Rose, left their home in De Smet, North Dakota, and traveled to Mansfield, Missouri. Seven years of too little rain had caused crop after crop to fail and the prairie had turned to dust. The Wilders packed their wagon, said their goodbyes and set out to begin a new life. Laura recorded their journey in a diary and it is those entries taht fill these pages.

Publisher's Description

In 1894, Laura Ingalls Wilder, her husband, Almanzo, and their daughter, Rose, packed their belongings into their covered wagon and set out on a journey from De Smet, South Dakota, to Mansfield, Missouri. They heard that the soil there was rich and the crops were bountiful -- it was even called "the Land of the Big Red Apple." With hopes of beginning a new life, the Wilders made their way to the Ozarks of Missouri.

During their journey, Laura kept a detailed diary of events: the cities they passed through, the travelers they encountered on the way, the changing countryside and the trials of an often difficult voyage. Laura's words, preserved in this book, reveal her inner thoughts as she traveled with her family in search of a new home in Mansfield, where Rose would spend her childhood, where Laura would write her Little House books, and where she and Almanzo would remain all the rest of their happy days together.

Author Bio

Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867–1957) was born in a log cabin in the Wisconsin woods. With her family, she pioneered throughout America’s heartland during the 1870s and 1880s, finally settling in Dakota Territory. She married Almanzo Wilder in 1885; their only daughter, Rose, was born the following year. The Wilders moved to Rocky Ridge Farm at Mansfield, Missouri, in 1894, where they established a permanent home. After years of farming, Laura wrote the first of her beloved Little House books in 1932. The nine Little House books are international classics. Her writings live on into the twenty-first century as America’s quintessential pioneer story.

    I have the entire set of books written by Laura Ingalls Wilder, including the one that depicts the first 4 years of her marriage. During those years her and her husband, Almanzo (Manly) Wilder endured hard times trying to "prove" their small tree farm. Almanzo endured sickness, Laura gave birth to their daughter, Rose, and their farm failed after many years of dry & difficult weather. Eventually, deep in debt, they had enough money to move to the Ozarks in a small wagon in search of a farm of mostly fruit trees. As they travelled each day, Laura kept a daily diary of their journey. Adding photographs and with Rose Wilder Lane to comment and put Laura's comments in context, the result is this small book called, "On the Way Home." i bought the version which is a small paperback but after reading the record of their travels, it felt like having a vist with an old friend. Simple, well written, interesting and entertaining. I would recommend this story to male or female, young or old alike.. Your Laura Ingalls Wilder collection is not complete without it and it enhances the theme that you either "find a cure or endure". People were certainly made of tougher material in the 1800's. This book is for everyone and everyone. Sincerely, Laura-Lee (Rahn)

    We get to read more of what the famous Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote. This book is the diary she wrote from the trip she and Almanzo with there daughter Rose. I really enjoyed this book. First there's a diary and Rose explains more about the trip after the diary. Small details Laura didn't write down like about the missing hundred dollar bill. I recommend this book to all the Little House on the Prairie fans out there. This is a must read and a perfect book for your library collection.
