The Ingalls family is heading west to the unsettled Dakota territory on the edge of the frontier. They will only have a few neighbors, and they're not even sure where their homestead will be in this new wild place. But Laura is eager to begin this new journey. She will be back where she belongs, back on the prairie, and that's all that matters.

About the Author
Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 in the log cabin described in Little House in the Big Woods. As her classic Little House books tell us, she and her family traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest. She and her husband, Almanzo Wilder, made their own covered-wagon trip with their daughter, Rose, to Mansfield, Missouri. There Laura wrote her story in the Little House books, and lived until she was ninety years old. For millions of readers, however, she lives forever as the little pioneer girl in the beloved Little House books.
