Customer Review

on April 16, 2002
"Famer Boy", the third book by Laura Ingalls Wilder in her "Little House" series, tells the story of her future husband, the uniquely named Almanzo Wilder. There, Almanzo lives on a farm with his parents and siblings, including Laura's future nemesis (and sister-in-law) Eliza Jane.
Like all the Little House books, it tells us in rich details how life is like just a couple of generations ago. Reading this book, and all the Little House books for that matter, made me realize that, for all the advanced technology we have today, we are not so superior to our forebearers.
Just reading the chapter on Almanzo's mother making candles made me realize that people back then are almost totally self-sufficient. They knows how to make the 101 little things that we take for granted today just by walking into a store.
All that aside, "Farmer Boy", like all the Little House books, is a timeless classic.
