Growing up on his family’s farm in New York, Almanzo Wilder wishes for only one thing: his very own horse. But Father doesn’t yet trust him with such a big responsibility. Almanzo needs to prove himself to Father—but how?
Based on the real adventures of Almanzo Wilder, FARMER BOY is the second book in the award-winning Little House series.
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.
