From the Back Cover:

The Ingalls family moves into the town of DeSmet to weather the dangerous winter ahead. As the snow mounts, Laura and her family must ration their food and coal as they wait in vain for a train to arrive with supplies. Almanzo Wilder and his brother realize that if something isn’t done soon, everyone will starve. They begin an impossible journey across the frozen prairie in search of provisions, before it’s too late.

Based on the real adventures of Laura Ingalls Wilder, THE LONG WINTER is the seventh book in the award-winning Little House series.

About the Author:

Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in Wisconsin in 1867. Her family moved around, travelling from Missouri to Kansas, Minnesota and back to Wisconsin. Eventually the family settled in De Smet, Dakota Territory and Laura worked regularly as a seamstress and teacher. She stopped working when she married Almanzo Wilder in 1885. Little House in the Big Woods was first published in 1932, Little House on the Prairie in 1935, and five more books in the Little House series followed. Laura also wrote Farmer Boy about her husband's childhood, and three more books were published posthumously. Laura was five times the recipient of the Newbery Honor Award for her distinguished contribution to American literature for children: On the Banks of Plum Creek (1938), By the Shores of Silver Lake (1940), The Long Winter (1941), Little Town on the Prairie (1942), These Happy Golden Years (1944). The books are charmingly illustrated with Garth Williams' black and white drawings from the 1953 editions.
