Product Description

For the first time in the history of the Little House books, this new edition features Garth Williams’ interior art in vibrant, full color, as well as a beautifully redesigned cover.

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.

From the Back Cover

The long winter is finally over, and with spring comes a new job for Laura, town parties, and more time to spend with Almanzo Wilder. When Laura finds out Ma and Pa are struggling to save money for Mary to go to college, Laura knows she must help, even if it means sacrificing her own dreams.

Based on the real adventures of Laura Ingalls Wilder, LITTLE TOWN ON THE PRAIRIE is the 8th book in the award-winning Little House series. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From AudioFile

This title, seventh in the Little House series, is once again narrated by Cherry Jones, who is just right for the part. This book depicts the changing nature of the prairie, documenting the way it is being tamed and settled as people begin to cluster their homes into towns. Laura's own life is changing, too, as she begins to work, have a social life, and step out with Almanzo Wilder and his team of beautiful horses. Jones's enthusiastic, slightly husky voice expresses impetuous Laura perfectly, and she is equally delightful at creating Pa's humor and Ma's refined restraint. This production provides hours of quality family entertainment. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
