After the long winter, spring came at last, and the little prairie town woke up. A year before, there had only been a site; now there was a town with two streets; and new settlers came every day. It was a wonderful place to live in, and a wonderful time to be alive. Laura was fourteen, young enough to get into trouble at school, and to worry about her first party; old enough to earn money, and to walk home from church with Almanzo Wilder. This is a story full of life and variety: one of the most vigorous of this fine series. "Laura Ingalls Wilder's" enchanting series of books tells the story of a girl - herself - growing up in the years when the American frontier was slowly being pushed westward and the pioneering families were working their claims, breaking the untilled land, raising the first settlements.

The little settlement that weathered the long, hard winter of 1880-81 is now a growing town. Laura is growing up, and she goes to her first evening social. Mary is at last able to go to a college for the blind. Best of all, Almanzo Wilder asks permission to walk home from church with Laura. And Laura, now fifteen years old, receives her certificate to teach school.About the Author:
Laura Elizabeth Ingalls was born in Wisconsin in 1867, and grew up in Dakota, where her pioneer father, Charles Ingalls, brought his family. She married Almanzo Wilder in 1887, and they eventually settled in Missouri, where half a century later, encouraged by her daughter Rose (herself a highly successful author), she began writing the stories of her childhood and girlhood which were to make her famous. Many years after her death, her books remain popular, and her home is still visited by many admirers who grew up with them.
