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.
