About the Author

Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in the Wisconsin woods in 1867. She wrote the Little House books based on her own experiences growing up on the Western frontier. Just like the characters in her stories, Laura and her family traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest as they moved from place to place. She and her husband, Almanzo, finally settled down in Mansfield, Missouri, where she lived until she was ninety years old.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Adults too! June 16 2004
Format:Hardcover
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a wonderful book. Oct. 18 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life on the Frontier April 7 2004
Format:Paperback
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 story begins in the big woods of Wisconsin. A family lived there that consisted of a a dog Jack, a baby Carrie, the oldest daugter Mary and the yourner daughter Laura. The parents are known in this story as Ma and Pa. Ma and Pa are somewhat strict whils Mary is somewhat conservitive and Laura is very adventorous. They left the big woods and went to a new place out west. They traveled along the Mississippi and stopped in amny differnt places to rest. When they finally got there they met their new neighbor, Mr. Edwards. When Pa and Mr. Edwards met Pa asked if they wanted to help each other build their houses. For the next several weeks they helped each other build their houses. When they were finished with the houses Pa asked Mr. Edwards if he would help him build his stable in turn for food. He accepted and they built a sturdy nice looking stable. One night Pa and Laura were sitting in the doorstep and they heard something that sounded very close. It was cowboys! The cowboys were coming to ask Pa if he would help them keep the cattle out of the ravine in turn for fresh meat. He accepted and was back in no time. The next day they decided to go search for an indian camp. They found one eventually but there was no one there. They found some beads and took them home and then they made a necklace for baby Carrie. She loved it. The next few weeks the girls were'nt feeling well. They were very sicka dn needed someone to take care of them luckily htye had a good neighbor who came to just check up on them. It was Mrs. Scott. She took care of them until they became well. Now it was Christmas time. Pa went down to town and bought the girls Christmas presents. They didnt know it but Mr. Scott was on his way over there and he was also bringing him presents for Christmas. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars a won derful escape to another time and place Oct. 27 2003
Format:Hardcover
I like this book because it takes you to the old days when the prairie was wild and free. It would be exciting to live there then. How does Laura adjust to her new log house? What about the indians? will they cause trouble for her? I like Mary too. It is interesting about mary and Laura's relationship as sisters. If you like exciting and relaxing fun as well on the wide open west of america in the old days you will love this book. I also recommen the other little house Books and Also the book called Prairie whispers about another gilr with a really exciting prairie story.
