It is time for Laura Ingalls and her family to leave Plum Creek after two poor harvests and an outbreak of scarlet fever, which has left her sister Mary blind.  Pa Ingalls finds a job on a new railroad and the family head out West to Silver Lake.

Settling in to Silver Lake, Pa finds the perfect place to build a house and it seems as though the Ingalls’ travelling days may be over.

‘Stock up, hunker down and enjoy.’ Lucy Mangan, Guardian

About the Author:

Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 in the log cabin described in Little House in the Big Woods. She and her family travelled by covered wagon across the Midwest. Later, Laura and her husband, Almanzo Wilder, made their own covered-wagon trip with their daughter, Rose, to Mansfield, Missouri. There, believing in the importance of knowing where you began in order to appreciate how far you've come, Laura wrote about her childhood growing up on the American frontier. For millions of readers Laura lives on forever as the little pioneer girl in the beloved Little House books.
