Synopsis
A history of the author Laura Ingalls Wilder's own family, as well as a very thorough overview of pioneer life in America, LITTLE HOUSE IN THE BIG WOODS is the first book in the beloved nine-book Little House series. Set in the woods of Wisconsin during the 1870s, this book follows one year in the life of the Ingalls family--Pa, Ma, Mary, Laura, and baby Carrie. Although LITTLE HOUSE IN THE BIG WOODS is primarily a testament to the author's family, the book also provides detailed information about the struggles and constant hard work of pioneer life. For example, readers will learn how Ma, with the help of Mary and Laura, cured the meat of the animals that Pa hunted, killed, butchered, and skinned so that the family would have food to eat during the long, cold Wisconsin winter. A celebration of family love and the American pioneer spirit, the Little House books are extremely popular, and even today readers can visit the homes once occupied by the Ingalls family--almost all of which have been preserved as historical landmarks. Illustrated with B&W pencil drawings.

Publisher's Note

Laura Ingalls's story begins in 1871 in a little log cabin on the edge of the Big Woods of Wisconsin. Four-year-old Laura lives in the little house with her Pa, her Ma, her sisters Mary and Carrie, and their trusty dog, Jack.

Pioneer life is sometimes hard, since the family must grow or catch all their own food as they get ready for the cold winter. But it is also exciting as Laura and her folks celebrate Christmas with homemade toys and treats, do the spring planting, bring in the harvest, and make their first trip into town. And every night they are safe and warm in their little house, with the happy sound of Pa's fiddle sending Laura and her sisters off to sleep.

And so begins Laura Ingalls Wilder's beloved story of a pioneer girl and her family. The nine Little House books have been cherished by generations of readers as both a unique glimpse into America's frontier past and a heartwarming, unforgettable story.
