The adventures of Laura Ingalls and her family continue as they leave their little house on the prairie and travel in their covered wagon to Minnesota. Here they settle in a little house made of sod beside the banks of beautiful Plum Creek. Soon Pa builds a wonderful new little house with real glass windows and a hinged door. Laura and her sister Mary go to school, help with the chores, and fish in the creek. At night everyone listens to the merry music of Pa's fiddle. Misfortunes come in the form of a grasshopper plague and a terrible blizzard, but the pioneer family works hard together to overcome these troubles.
And so continues 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.

Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 in the log cabin described in Little House in the Big Woods. She and her family traveled 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.
At long last, these famous stories about the Ingalls family are making their way into audio. Narrator Cherry Jones finds the right pitch for every occasion. She reads about Laura's many escapades with a tone of gentle amusement. A serious, quiet tone sets the mood when grasshoppers destroy the first wheat crop, and a tone of anxiety draws out the moments when Pa is lost in a snowstorm. The production gives a sense of the joys and dangers of life on the frontier, and it also brings to life Laura's sense of wonder, curiosity, and fun. This is an excellent choice for families to share. A.F. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
