"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

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.
At long last, these famous stories about the Ingalls family are making their way into audio. Narrator Cherry Jones finds the right pitch for every occasion. She reads about Laura's many escapades with a tone of gentle amusement. A serious, quiet tone sets the mood when grasshoppers destroy the first wheat crop, and a tone of anxiety draws out the moments when Pa is lost in a snowstorm. The production gives a sense of the joys and dangers of life on the frontier, and it also brings to life Laura's sense of wonder, curiosity, and fun. This is an excellent choice for families to share. A.F. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine

This is not the feel good everything works out by the end of the TV show read. It is a story of hardship and privation. An in depth look and our brave ancestors and what they had to endure to realize their dreams. Of course there is love and family and happiness too. The accounts of their daily lives are amazing.
