9780060581800: Little House in the Big Woods (Little House (HarperTrophy))

Classic tales by Laura Ingalls Wilder about life on the frontier and America’s best-loved pioneer family.

Inside the little house in the Big Woods live the Ingalls family: Ma, Pa, Mary, Laura and baby Carrie. Outside the little house are the wild animals: the bears and the bees, the deer and the wolves. This is the classic tale of how they live together, in harmony mostly, but sometimes in fear . . .

The timeless stories that inspired a TV series can now be read by a new generation of children. Little House in the Big Woods is the prequel to Little House on the Prairie and On the Banks of Plum Creek.

Product Description:

The true story of a young girl's new life and experiences with her family in the heart of the Wisconsin Woods, during the pioneering years of the 19th century. The author also wrote "Farmer Boy", "The First Four Years" and all the "Little House" stories.

About the Author:

Laura Ingalls Wilder Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in Wisconsin in 1867. Her family moved around, travelling from Missouri to Kansas, Minnesota and back to Wisconsin. Eventually the family settled in De Smet, Dakota Territory and Laura worked regularly as a seamstress and teacher. She stopped working when she married Almanzo Wilder in 1885. Little House in the Big Woods was first published in 1932, Little House on the Prairie in 1935, and five more books in the Little House series followed. Laura also wrote Farmer Boy about her husband’s childhood, and three more books were published posthumously. Laura was five times the recipient of the Newbery Honor Award for her distinguished contribution to American literature for children: On the Banks of Plum Creek (1938), By the Shores of Silver Lake (1940), The Long Winter (1941), Little Town on the Prairie (1942), These Happy Golden Years (1944). The books are charmingly illustrated with Garth Williams’ black and white drawings from the 1953 editions.

Little House in the Big Woods is the first book in Laura Ingalls Wilder s treasured Little House series, which was based on her life growing up as an American pioneer.

Laura lives in the little house with her Pa, her Ma, her sisters Mary and Carrie, and their trusty dog, Jack. Pioneer life is sometimes hard for the family, since they must grow or catch all their own food as they get ready for the cold winter. But it is also exciting as Laura and her family celebrate Christmas with homemade toys and treats, do the spring planting, bring in the harvest, and make their first trip into town. And every night they are safe and warm in their little house, with the happy sound of Pa s fiddle sending Laura and her sisters off to sleep.
