The special Collector's Editions of the Little House on the Prairie series features Garth Williams interior art in vibrant, full color, as well as a beautifully redesigned cover.

This is Laura Ingalls Wilder's beloved story of how her husband Almanzo grew up as a farmer boy far from the little house where Laura lived. While Laura Ingalls grows up in a little house on the western prairie, Almanzo Wilder is living on a big farm in New York State. Here Almanzo and his brother and sisters help with the summer planting and fall harvest. In winter there is wood to be chopped and great slabs of ice to be cut from the river and stored. Time for fun comes when the jolly tin peddler visits, or best of all, when the fair comes to town. Recommended for ages 8 to 12.

This was a help, but it did not solve his major problem: he was in love with the beautiful swan, Serena, and she spurned him because he was defective.

Louis's determination to become a trumpeter and pay off his father's debt takes him far from the wilderness he loves. But he succeeds and wins the swan of his desiring.Recommended for ages 8 to 12.
