Little House

Big Adventure

Almanzo Wilder is going west! He and his family are moving all the way from their cozy farm in Malone, New York, to the bustling town of Spring Valley, Minnesota. Almanzo cant wait to explore, but life in Spring Valley isnt what he expected. The Wilders have to stay with relatives in a small, cramped house where Almanzos aunt Martha is cold and unfriendly. Almanzo longs for the freedom he had back home, and he especially misses his horse, Starlight. Even as he makes new friends at school and helps his father pick a plot of land for the family to settle on, Almanzo cant help but wonder: Is Minnesota the right place for the Wilders? Or do they belong in New York?

First introduced in Laura Ingalls Wilders classic Little House book Farmer Boy, Almanzo Wilders adventures continue in Farmer Boy Goes West.

About the Author

Heather Williams is the pen name for Tui Sutherland, author of several children's books, including Who Was Harry Houdini? and the Shakespearean romantic comedy this must be love. She lives in Boston with her dog and her husband. She is very grateful that—unlike Nellie and Laura—she gets to have air-conditioning, TV, and a library around the corner.
