Laura Ingalls Wilder. Illustrated by Garth Williams. Chapter 1. Going West

Laura Ingalls Wilder. Going West. A long time ago, when all the grandfathers and grandmothers of today were little boys and little girls or very small babies, or perhaps not even born, Pa and Ma and Mary and Laura and Baby Carrie left their little house in the Big Woods of Wisconsin. They drove away and left it lonely and empty in the clearing among the big trees, and they never saw that little house again.

Laura and her family journey west by covered wagon, only to find they are in Indian territory and must move on. Notable Children's Books of 1940 - 1954 (ALA) Horn Book Children's Classics 1976.

While Laura Ingalls grows up in a little house on the western prairie, Almanzo Wilder is living .

While Laura Ingalls grows up in a little house on the western prairie, Almanzo Wilder is living on a big farm in New York State. Almanzo and his brother and sisters work at their chores from dawn to supper most days - no matter what the weather. There is still time for fun, though, especially with the horses, which Almanzo loves more than anything. Garth Williams is the renowned illustrator of almost one hundred books for children, including the beloved Stuart Little by E. B. White, Bedtime for Frances by Russell Hoban, and the Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder. He was born in 1912 in New York City but raised in England.

The adventures continue for Laura Ingalls and her family as they leave their little house in the Big Woods of Wisconsin and set out for the big skies of the Kansas Territory. They travel for many days in their covered wagon until they find the best spot to build their house

Winter is coming, and their log house is snug and warm. The land is new and different with nothing to see but prairie grass and a giant sky. And while the land yields everything the Ingalls family could want - plenty of game and fish and empty land on which they build a house, plant crops and make their home - it also has its dangers, including wolves and Indians, upon whose land white settlers are encroaching.

Based on the real-life adventures of Laura Ingalls Wilder, Little House on the Prairie is the third book in the award-winning Little House series, which has captivated generations of readers. This edition features the classic black-and-white artwork from Garth Williams.

Laura Ingalls and her family are heading to Kansas! Leaving behind their home in the Big Woods of Wisconsin, they travel by covered wagon until they find the perfect spot to build a little house on the prairie. Laura and her sister Mary love exploring the rolling hills around their new home, but the family must soon get to work, farming and hunting and gathering food for themselves and for their livestock. Just when the Ingalls family starts to settle into their new home, they find themselves caught in the middle of a conflict. Will they have to move again?

The nine books in the timeless Little House series tell the story of Laura’s real childhood as an American pioneer, and are cherished by readers of all generations. They offer a unique glimpse into life on the American frontier, and tell the heartwarming, unforgettable story of a loving family.

When I was a child, I had the entire series of Laura Ingalls Wilder's Books. My babysitter at the time, gave me her set. I was careful to loan out the books one at a time to friends I knew would cherish them as much as I did.

I started giving these books to my grandchild, and at first we read them together, then she started reading them on her own. Now, we watch the old television series together, and it brings back memories of our days reading together. We both love the television series as much as we do the books, they portray the life as it was. Maybe not as primitive, but certainly as children , they accept the hard work and the limited income the Wilder's have. This family is a superb e ample if a hapoy family, their ups and downs, and they have many, and the manger in which the family faces each obstacle. An excellent example of a true family life.

What Kindle Users Want to Know:

I purchased this on Kindle and was very pleased. The illustrations are the same as the print version. You can navigate through chapters easily. All in all a book perfectly formatted for Kindle.

What Reads Want to Know:

A classic story from Laura Ingalls Wilder about the early life of her husband Almanzo Wilder living near Malone New York. The story centers around Almanzo and his brother Royal and his sisters Eliza Jane and Alice. (Laura his eldest sibling was 22 and living elsewhere and his youngest sibling Pearly Day was not yet born). Almanzo's love of horses is a center theme of the book which takes you through the seasons in a farmer boy's year. What amazes me is the lack of waste back then. Nothing was wasted. Oat straws were used to make summer hats, apple cores were saved to make vinegar, ashes were saved to make lye soap, and the fat from the pig slaughter is used to make tallow for candles and other uses.

Unlike the Ingalls family, Almanzo's were for their part quite well off. They had large barns, a nice house with a parlor, upstairs bedrooms, and an icehouse. The farm sat on a large track of fertile farmland. Father bred driving horses as well as farming and Mother wove cloth for the clothing they wore. If you read just one chapter.... read "Keeping House". Such a funny story unto itself it will make you want to read the whole story. In conclusion, a delightful book from my childhood that can now be shared via Kindle.
Bought this for long car rides -- so much better than a DVD! My 5, 12 and 17 year old all love it. The reader does a great job. She has a very clear voice and you really get into the story. She's not monotonous but also isn't overly theatrical. We have all really gotten engrossed in this story (which I didn't expect). I enjoy this greatly and enjoy that my kids are into it. My middle son has read the story, so it's great for him to hear it as well :)
This is the standard Little House on the Prairie book with the only difference being that the book is a hard back with dust cover and all of the illustrations by Garth Williams are in full color.

You can certainly find the paperback version with the black and white illustrations more cheaply, but I wanted this particular version to read to my girls because I noted when I first started this series with them, the old fashioned language and concepts were hard to follow and they lost interests. The colored pictures seems to make the story more interesting for them, and they are more engaged. Not sure if this is really due to the pictures or completely random, but the book is beautifully done, and from a personal perspective, I really like it - I loved the series as a child, but had never seen the pictures in color - added a nice touch for me as the parent reading the book each night.
Although I should most probably relate to Laura being female and also raised on the prairie, I truly relate to Almanzo more. From age six forward, all I wanted was horse of my own, and later one I could gentle and train myself. And eventually the dreams became reality. Now I have seen my youth and prime adult years come and go, and as i reread this beloved book in front of the fire as the snow fell outside of the farmhouse I now own, I am transported back to the first time I read the book, when Almanzo and I shared a dream and am reminded dreams really do come true. Please share this series with any child you love so they can know it too.
I borrowed these from my Grandma as a teenager and read them and fell in love. I soon got my own set of books but it gives me great pleasure to have them on my kindle and give my beloved books a rest. I love these books and they are timeless classics. I love the color illustrated pictures on the kindle it gives the story even more life. Farmer Boy is my favorite of the books.
Loved it. Fun and interesting. Seemed a bit short to me, but still enjoyable. Ages 10- and up. I do suggest, but you should read the first one first.
Don't listen to the people who say it's boring because it's definitely not. It just for older kids. Please don't make reviews saying "my 5 year old got bored" of course they would they're 5 at least wait till they can read on their own.
Kids 10+ it's great. Girls may like it more.
These books were read over and over to me as a child and remain some of my favorite as a parent. I purchased this one for my own kids and they love the pictures throughout the book. The story itself is so well-written and so easy to fall in love with at any age. At 3 & 5 years old my kids love to sit and listen to a chapter or two, in a few years I'm sure they'll enjoy reading them on their own!
