Synopses & Reviews
When Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote her first book, Little House in the Big Woods, she captured history in the eyes of a little girl who had boundless love for her family, her land, and all of her little houses. Pioneer life is sometimes hard for Laura and her family, but it is also exciting as they 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.
For anyone who has ever read and loved Little House in the Big Woods, and for those many readers who have yet to discover Laura's world, this seventy-fifth anniversary edition, with heartwarming illustrations by Garth Williams, is a volume to cherish forever.
