The Ingalls family has seen both joy and hardship since the end of On the Banks of Plum Creek. Mary has been left blind from a battle with scarlet fever, and a new sister, Grace, has been born. Pa decides to move to a railroad camp in the unsettled Dakota Territory to work as a bookkeeper to earn money. Eventually, Laura, her sisters, and Ma travel by train to join Pa at the spot he’s claimed for their new home. They spend a long winter in the surveyor’s house, and in the spring, Pa begins to build a store. It’s the first building in what will become the town of De Smet. Finally, the Ingalls family’s travels by covered wagon are over.
The nine books in the timeless Little House series tell the story of Laura’s real childhood as an American pioneer, and are cherished by readers of all generations. They offer a unique glimpse into life on the American frontier, and tell the heartwarming, unforgettable story of a loving family.

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.
Garth Williams's classic illustrations for the Little House books caused Laura to remark that she "and her folks live again in these pictures." Garth Williams also illustrated Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, and almost one hundred other books.
JOSHUA L.5 Stars Out Of 5January 14, 2010JOSHUA L.As others have said these books do take you back in time. I love it!!! I haven't finished as exactly yet. But I'm working on it. Beautfully made. As I said in the other reveiws the pages aren't like regular paper so they don't rip as easily. And the cover is softcover but it is protected very nicely.Highly recommended!
Heather Laurie5 Stars Out Of 5September 6, 2009Heather LaurieThis delightful story takes the Ingall's family into the Dakota territories. My children were eager to hear each new chapter. The rich descriptions of the creation of the railroad and the territory have taught us so much more of the settling of our great nation. I recommend anyone adding this great series to their home libraries!
