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 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.

    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.
