Me either, but honestly? That is my favorite book of the series.

It's depressing too...just in a completely different way!

Did not check the In reply button and thought you were discussing Deliverance (-:

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 30, 2012 5:30:52 AM PST
That's exactly right. I mean, it DID give you a very good sense of, "Will we die today, Ma?", but it wasn't exactly enjoyable.

Even Laura's version of The Long Winter was depressing. Sitting around grinding wheat in a coffee grinder and making haysticks to burn, while freezing and being hungry.
I have NO interest in going back in time to live like that!

We went to Mansfield in April of 2008. It was beautiful weather. Loved the whole area.

Sort of depressing, which come to think of it, is fairly immersive, given the title. A lot of sitting around, trying not to freeze for one more day.

Glad I read through the thread (especially the OP) prior to posting.

My initial thought was "What are some mysteries involving camping?"

Obviously my answer of Deliverance would NOT work for the true purpose of this thread!

LOL!

It was wonderful, wasn't it? It was a May twenty years ago, when we were there, so the humidity wasn't horrid, yet. Everything was green and lovely!

The trip to De Smet was two years ago. To stand at the cottonwoods that Pa planted, to walk around the Big Slough and see where Silver lake used to be was amazing. I cried at the cottonwoods.

Me, too. I've been to Burr Oak, Independence, De Smet, and of course Mansfield. I missed going to Lake Pepin by a couple of hours.

I LOVED SRAs.

I saw these a while ago. I haven't read them, but the author wrote most of the early Nancy Drew books. The two volumes are 1.99 each and together they contain a total of 17 books.

The Penny Parker Mystery Series Volume I by Mildred A. Wirt (Halcyon Classics)
The Penny Parker Mystery Series Volume II by Mildred A. Wirt (Halcyon Classics)

Walter Farley wrote a series about The Black Stallion (and Red Stallion) that I thought were wonderful and still love.

Grrr, *I* was gonna say Encyclopedia Brown... :)

B. Hartman, a true *oldie* series for boys: The Tom Swift Collection: 28 Novels in One Volume (Halcyon Classics)

I loved all the usuals like Nancy Drew, Cherry Ames, Dana Girls, some Hardy Boys...
Lol, I also used to collect the 'tv' based serials, like those for The Partridge Family, Brady Bunch, etc.
(not really the best stories, though.)

Wow, your post really took me back. I haven't thought about SRA in so long - what a flood of memories you've opened up. There were different color sets, right ? I remember gold and silver, if I'm not mistaken. Thanks !

The Three Investigators!! Also, Encyclopedia Brown.

Seeing the house was great. It is much smaller than I thought. I had seen pictures of the inside but you really have to be there to see how low the ceilings are and how small the rooms are. Everything is like she left it when she died in 1957. She designed the house and they did much of the original work themselves. It is beautiful country there.

The ones I love are the first six, written by Julie Campbell. Once someone else took over, they weren't any good IMO. And 5 of the first six are Kindles.

I am jealous. A wonderful tour, I'd imagine. What were your favorite things?

To Marmer, Thanks. Never heard of Trixie Belden. I'll check it out.

To K. and Folina, thank you! Yes I've read them.

Actually I've never read that book. Will put it on my list.
A few years ago I got to visit Laura's home in Missouri. Wonderful trip.

I'm a member of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Memorial Society (they're in in De Smet.)
I will try your links, thank you. I'm sure you've read The Long, Hard Winter of 1880-81: What was it really like?. It's a good history of the book.

Very well, thanks. I remember chatting with you in the early days; it's nice to do so again.
