Laura and her family are headed to the Dakota Territory, and this time they’re traveling by train! Pa has a job with the railroad, and a chance to finally own his own land. But the new town of Desmet is quickly filling up with settlers, and the Ingalls family must do whatever it takes to defend their land.
Based on the real adventures of Laura Ingalls Wilder, BY THE SHORES OF SILVER LAKE is the sixth book in the award-winning Little House series. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
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.
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.See all Editorial Reviews
