The adventures of Laura Ingalls and her family continue as they move from their little house on the banks of Plum Creek to the wilderness of the unsettled Dakota Territory. Here Pa works on the new railroad until he finds a homestead claim that is perfect for their new little house. Laura takes her first train ride as she, her sisters, and their mother come out to live with Pa on the shores of Silver Lake. After a lonely winter in the surveyors' house, Pa puts up the first building in what will soon be a brand-new town on the beautiful shores of Silver Lake. The Ingallses' covered-wagon travels are finally over.

About the Author:

Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867–1957) was born in a log cabin in the Wisconsin woods. With her family, she pioneered throughout America’s heartland during the 1870s and 1880s, finally settling in Dakota Territory. She married Almanzo Wilder in 1885; their only daughter, Rose, was born the following year. The Wilders moved to Rocky Ridge Farm at Mansfield, Missouri, in 1894, where they established a permanent home. After years of farming, Laura wrote the first of her beloved Little House books in 1932. The nine Little House books are international classics. Her writings live on into the twenty-first century as America’s quintessential pioneer story.

From AudioFile:

Those who've enjoyed listening to Laura Ingalls Wilder's other audiobooks will welcome this book, the fifth in her Little House series. Once again read by the excellent Cherry Jones, this story details the realities of pioneer life--an existence touching in its simplicity and sobering in its everyday hardships. This production offers listeners hours of thought-provoking family entertainment as they stop to consider the limited winter diet of people on the frontier, along with other realities such as keeping warm and staying well on the empty pre-settlement prairies. Jones's earnest, slightly husky voice enthusiastically captures Laura's eagerness, Pa's playfulness, and Ma's more reserved and refined tones. This production is complemented by violin music, which punctuates the chapters and gives voice to Pa's beloved fiddle.
