Product Description

About the Author

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.

From AudioFile

This classic tale of a family's move from the woods of Wisconsin to the prairies of Kansas not long after the Civil War has delighted readers for decades. Now we can be delighted by listening to Cherry Jones's performance. Her lively and versatile delivery gives voice to Laura, Ma, and Pa. Especially enjoyable is hearing her sing. Paul Woodiel's fiddle playing adds even more to this production.

The author of Little House on the Prairie is Laura Ingalls Wilder. The story is about a little girl named Laura Ingalls and her ma, pa, and her two sisters Mary and baby Carrie. In the 1880's they move from Wisconsin to Indian country which is Kansas. They build a house of logs and they face many hardships: a rushing river they have to cross, illness, fires, and an Indian scare. When these events are happening the story goes very fast. The first book, Little House in the Big Wood,s is better than this book because it is more interesting. It is interesting because it doesn't have lots of boring details like when pa and Laura put on a door. There are more exciting parts in Little House in the Big Woods like when Laura and her family go to their grandparents' house for a dance. "Suddenly Uncle George did a pigeon wing, and bowing low before Grandma he began to jig. Grandma tossed her spoon to somebody. She put her hands on her hips and faced Uncle George, and everybody shouted. Grandma is jigging." I think that women and girls would like this book. There are nine books in the Laura Ingalls Wilder's series. The illustrator, Garth Williams draws excellent pictures in the book.

Laura's family once setteld. They are great books! I am seeing the whole experience from a new perspective now that I am 35 (relating more with Ma I think) and I am enjoying the stories completely. It's also nice because the books can be read in a single afternoon or just a few hours. A wonderful look at the pioneer life with details on cabin building and settling a piece of land. I highly recommend these books but suggest reading them in order to keep the story of Laura's adventures straight.

Pa Ingalls is tired of how crowded the big woods are getting. So he decides to sell the house and move west with his family. Just before the ice breaks, the family loads up their wagon and heads out. They cross the Mississippi River and then head south, settling two days away from Independence, Missouri. Now they have to build a new house and survive the wilderness. Meanwhile, Laura is anxious to see a papoose. And with all the Indians in the area, she may get her chance.
This is a charming book. It's almost a collection of short stories with many chapters being a self-contained event. Still, through these pages, we get a good picture of life on the American frontier 130 years ago. The book gives plenty of detail about their everyday life without getting bogged down. And it is interesting. Frankly, some of the chapters are so harrowing I felt my pulse quicken. Often I found myself shaking my head in awe at what the Ingalls dealt with on a daily basis. This is a good way to make anyone appreciate just what we have today.
These books are still popular 70 years after they were first written for good reason. They are an entertaining and enlightening look at a bygone era.

This book is a historical fiction book.It teaches you about prairie life while giving you an adventure.Its the sequel to "Little House in the Big Woods."
It starts out when Laura Ingalls(the author)and her family decide to move out of the woods to the prairie,where there is more space.They pack their things in a covered wagon and leave.
The Ingalls must cross the Mississippi River while it is frozen. There are many other things during their trip that Laura sees that she describes very well.
Once they are there,Pa Ingalls starts their new house,while Ma and the children live in a small hole.Pa does most of the log stacking,and its very ingenious how the house is built.Ma helps for a while but a log falls on her foot.That part is kind of sad. The family dog,Jack,was lost while crossing a lake.That part was really sad and almost made me stop reading.But I saw his name further into the book,so I didn't stop.
Laura,being the tomboy of the family,helps Pa make the door.I love it how they show the steps to making the door.Its cool how a door with hinges could be made back then.They even made a lock.
The family have many adventures in the house.Some of then are with indians.They find beads at an indian camp and that starts a rival between Laura and her sister,Mary.Mary decides to use her beads to make a necklace for their baby sister,Carrie.Not wanting to look spoiled,Laura decides to,also.One time indians came to the house,there were fires and other extraordinary adventures.
During their life on the prairie,the Ingalls make two friends.One is Mr.Edwards,who is a very jolly guy.The other is Mr. Scott,who isn't as cool,but still okay.These men help the Ingalls a lot.Being the only neighbors,everyone becomes fast friends.
The praire was large and neighbors were far away.
