Publisher Comments:

Rose Wilder Lane was a well-known journalist and writer. In this gripping novel, she turns to the period of history that made her mother so beloved. Newlyweds David and Molly are only eighteen and sixteen years old when they pack up their wagon and head west across the plains in search of a new home. At first, luck is on their side: the wheat is high, they find a warm, cozy dugout to live in, and soon a new baby is born to share their happiness. Then disaster strikes, and Molly is left alone with the baby — with nothing but her own courage to face the dangers of the harsh prairie winter. An extraordinary tale of pioneer bravery, Young Pioneers is a story that will inspire not just Little House fans, but readers of all ages.

Then disaster strikes, and David must go east for the winter to find work. Molly is left alone with the baby — with nothing but her own courage to face the dangers of the harsh prairie winter.
