Editorial Reviews

Review

Sequel to Little House in the Big Woods, and true story of the author's own childhood, and of the days when her father, feeling that civilization was coming too fast to the Big Woods, uprooted his little family and took them, via covered wagon, to Kansas. Good Americana - and a first rate tale. Personally, I liked it certainly as well, perhaps better than the other.

From the Back Cover

The Ingalls family is headed west to Kansas. Pa builds a new cabin for shelter, and Laura and her sister Mary set out to explore the rolling hills and hidden nooks of the vast land around them. Just when the pioneering family begins to feel settled, they find themselves caught in the middle of a dangerous struggle between the Osage Indians and the U.S. government.

Based on the real adventures of Laura Ingalls Wilder, LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE is the third book in the award-winning Little House series.

About the Author

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.

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.
