LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE: Seven Book Set


LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE: Seven Book Set

LAURA INGALLS WILDER     Book Number: 88705    Product format: Hardback

In these classic tales about life on the frontier and America's best-loved pioneer family we meet inside the little house in the Big Woods the Ingalls family - Ma, Pa, Mary, Laura and baby Carrie. Featuring Garth Williams' interior art in vibrant colour as well as beautifully redesigned covers, the seven books are Little House on the Prairie, Little House in the Big Woods, On the Banks of Plum Creek, By the Shores of Silver Lake, The Long Winter, Little Town on the Prairie and These Happy Golden Years. Ma and the girls follow Pa west by train where they make their home at a rough railroad camp and plan for their own homestead. Laura is hoping to gain her teaching certificate and is determined to study hard at school. Teaching at the Brewster settlement, miles away from her family, is not as exciting as Laura hoped and she is very homesick in the final instalment. If you have ever dreamt of living in a cosy log cabin in Wisconsin the 1870s joining the pioneers, owning horses, building a new house made of sawed lumber, growing wheat, watching millions of grasshoppers cover the field and eat everything on the farm until there is no wheat left, there is much adventure here. We meet baby Grace in By the Shores of Silver Lake, and in the series there are parties, socials and 'literaries', sewing shirts, courting, storms, sickness, fire and unpaid debts. You too can set out for Indian country! Ages 7-10 years and nostalgic adults. Seven paperbacks.
