Lauraleads a traditional farm life: spending time churning butter and making cheese and maple syrup. Laura goes to town for the first time, and plays with her sister. Each night, while the wind blows, and the wolves howl, the happy sound of Pa's fiddle, brought vividly to life on this recording, keeps the family safe and warm.
Little House in the Big Woods is the first book in the Laura Years series.

Although the Little House stories are traditionally seen as "girl" books, boys might be happily surprised if they take another peek at their sisters' shelves. Little House in the Big Woods--the first book of the series and Laura Ingalls Wilder's first children's book--is full of the thrills, chills, and spills typically associated with "boy" books. Any boy or girl who has fantasized about running off to live in the woods will find ample information in these pages to manage a Wisconsin snowstorm, a panther attack, or a wild sled ride with a pig as an uninvited guest. Every chapter divulges fascinatingly intricate, yet easy-to-read, details about pioneer life in the Midwest in the late 1800s, from bear-meat curing to maple-tree sapping to homemade bullet making.
Wilder's autobiographical tales ring with truth and excitement. Readers will receive a perfectly painless history lesson, and in fact will clamor for more. Beloved illustrator Garth Williams spent years researching young Laura's pioneering family. His soft-line illustrations bring to life the full, simple days and nights in the family's log cabin. No one can read just one Little House book! (Ages 9 to 12) --Emilie CoulterFrom the Back Cover:
New York Times bestselling author RACHEL GIBSON returns with this dazzling love story filled with sizzle, sass, and just a bit of southern charm
And with those words, Vivian Leigh Rochet nearly melted. It s been years since she last saw Henry Whitley-Shuler. She was a teenager scrubbing houses for a living. He was the gorgeous son of rich parents, not fit for the likes of her.
Vivian had vowed to get out of Charleston, become a big Hollywood star, and stick it to the snooty girls who made her cry. She got what she wanted and more but why does her glamorous life seem so trivial?
Henry got out too . . . making it all the way to Wall Street, until a heart attack forced him to trade in his cuff links for a good set of hand tools.
Making furniture soothes his soul, but escaping the Whitley-Shuler heritage is nearly impossible. And now he s come face-to-face with the one who got away. He s not looking for love. He s not even looking for sex . . . so why is resisting her the hardest thing he s ever done?"
