Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

From the Back Cover
Set during the pioneer days of the late 1800s and early 1900s, Laura Ingalls Wilder's books chronicle her life growing up on the Western frontier. For the first time in the history of the Little House books, these new editions feature Garth Williams' interior art in vibrant, full color. Come along for the adventure with this collector's set of the first five Little House books.
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.

Though it is not the complete set, this boxed collection is worth splurging on as it is a full-color collector's edition. The illustrations by Garth Williams are beautiful and truly evoke the wonderful world written about by Laura Ingalls Wilder all those years ago. The paper is of high quality and has a glossy finish to it, the text type is large enough that it won't strain one's eyes, and is sturdy enough to be held and read over and over again.
I believe the other books in the series not included in this set are also available to be purchased individually[also illustrated in full color by Garth Williams]. The missing titles are: The Long Winter, Little Town on the Prairie, These Happy Golden Years, and The First Four Years.
Fans both young and old will enjoy these timeless stories of family,community, faith and challenges, and this sumptuously illustrated boxed set is sure to be a keepsake for collectors, and something that can be passed down.
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.
"what made this country great" - and what we base our concept on of what America is all about.
This is not the full set. I ended up giving this away and buying the 9 volume set because it was missing
my favorite one: The Long Winter -- about how even under
the toughest circumstances the indomitable human spirit prevails!
