From the Back Cover
For the first time in the history of the Little House books, this new edition features Garth Williams interior art in vibrant, full color, as well as a beautifully redesigned cover.
Laura Ingalls's story begins in 1871 in a little log cabin on the edge of the Big Woods of Wisconsin. Four-year-old Laura lives in the little house with her Pa, her Ma, her sisters Mary and Carrie, and their trusty dog, Jack.
Pioneer life is sometimes hard, since the family must grow or catch all their own food as they get ready for the cold winter. But it is also exciting as Laura and her folks celebrate Christmas with homemade toys and treats, do the spring planting, bring in the harvest, and make their first trip into town. And every night they are safe and warm in their little house, with the happy sound of Pa's fiddle sending Laura and her sisters off to sleep.
And so begins Laura Ingalls Wilder's beloved story of a pioneer girl and her family. The nine Little House books have been cherished by generations of readers as both a unique glimpse into America's frontier past and a heartwarming, unforgettable story.
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.

I purchased this set new, through AMAZON PRIME; and for the money, it is well worth it. All nine books in beautifully colored covers. One day, it would be nice to see the books printed on quality paper; but the price would definitely go up. All things considered, I am happy with the purchase.
There is another box set, October 2004, which has full color illustrations, but is only a set of the first 5 books. I do not know what kind of paper the stories are printed on, but it is manufactured in China.
Hope this helps some of you who are trying to decide which set to buy.
I am actually purchasing this set again, to keep for myself, so I have a beautiful fresh set of books for my collection.
There are many other sets out there, but this was the best price that I could find for the complete set. What a bargain for the joys my daughter and I have had reading them together!
