A classic story of childhood, Little House on the Prairie tells how Laura and Mary, their little sister Baby Carrie and their Pa and Ma pack up their home in Wisconsin and set out for the wide open prairie where Pa is sure they can find a better life. They are true pioneers. But, new troubles confront the family including the risk of fire and a terrifying moment when their home is circled by Indians. How the family pull together and especially how the sisters, Laura and Mary, make the most of their intrepid childhood is heart-warming.


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. The most popular of the Little House books, this one tells how Laura's family moved from the ‘Big Woods' in their covered wagon and travelled West (with the American frontier) to the Prairie. Adventure all the way, but the enduring quality of these marvellous books is the feeling that home is where your family is - even if bears and unfriendly Indians are on the prowl outside.

About the Author

Laura Ingalls Wilder

Laura Elizabeth Ingalls was born February 7, 1867, in a little log house in the Big Woods of Wisconsin. Laura's childhood was spent traveling west by covered wagon, to Indian Territory in Kansas, to Grasshopper Country in Minnesota, and then to Dakota Territory, where she met and married Almanzo Wilder.

Laura's daughter Rose grew up listening to her mother's stories of those pioneer days. She urged her mother to write them down so that other children could enjoy them, as well. So in the 1930s and 40s, Laura recorded her memories of those days of long ago in a children's series known as the "Little House"® books.

Although Laura died on February 10, 1957, at her home in the Ozarks of Missouri, she and her family will live forever in the hearts of her readers.
