THIRD BOOK IN THE LAURA INGALLS WILDER CELEBRATED LITTLE HOUSE SERIES, BASED ON A TRUE STORY.
SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL, #27 AMONG TOP 100 OF ALL-TIME CHILDREN’S NOVELS. CHILDREN’S LITERATURE LEGACY AWARD WINNING AUTHOR (PREVIOUSLY KNOWN AS THE LAURA INGALLS WILDER MEDAL).
Laura Ingalls is a small girl caught up in the westward expansion. When her Pa decides the Big Woods of Wisconsin is too crowded, the Ingalls family packs up and heads for open spaces. Laura finds the trip alternates between boredom and moments of heart-stopping excitement in their covered wagon. The real story starts when they arrive in the grasslands of Kansas and begin to build new lives – learning to live with nearby Indians, howling wolves, and surviving a prairie fire only to find out, a year later, that they have built three miles over the line into Indian Territory.
A book filled with adventure and enchanting illustrations by Garth Williams.
