America's Original Pioneer Girl
Meet Laura Ingalls, the girl who would grow up to write the Little House books. The Long Winter is over. With Spring come socials, parties, and "Literaries." There is also work to be done. Laura spends many hours each day sewing shirts to help send Mary to college for the blind. But in the evenings, Laura makes time for a new caller, Almanzo Wilder.
Little Town on the Prairie is the seventh book in the Laura Years series.

Laura Ingalls Wilder Read by author
A classis story is brought on life on audio complete and unabridged for the first time.
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 Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 in the log cabin described in Little House in the Big Woods
. She and her family traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest. Later, Laura and her husband, Almanzo Wilder, made their own covered-wagon trip with their daughter, Rose, to Mansfield, Missouri. There, believing in the importance of knowing where you began in order to appreciate how far you've come, Laura wrote about her childhood growing up on the American frontier. For millions of readers Laura lives on forever as the little pioneer girl in the beloved Little House books.
