The long hard winter was over. The people of DeSmet, South Dakota, came outdoors and began to live again. They held church socials. dances, and "literaries." In the summer Laura took a grueling job--making shirts, through long hard hours. She wanted to get the money to help send Mary to the college for the blind in Vinton, Iowa. Suddenly, Laura was a young lady. And who but the dashing Almanzo Wilder escorted her home in the evenings.

Very sweet story. However it is probably my least favorite of the books thus far, but it was enjoyable to see what life was like for a teenager during those early 1880s. I really don't understand how anyone could be as annoying and selfish as Nellie Oleson. You'd think she'd grow up a little from the last time she was mentioned in the series. Goodness those kids learned things so much more advanced than kids these days. We're pretty stupid these days. Makes me sad.

This is a very interesting book. Laura is growing up. The little settlement that weathered the long, hard winter of 1880-81 is now a growing town. Laura is growing up, and she goes to her first evening social. Mary is at last able to go to a college for the blind. Best of all, Almanzo Wilder asks permission to walk home from church with Laura. And Laura, now fifteen years old, receives her certificate to teach school. This is a transition period for all the Ingalls family. This is a true story, and we see the United States transition as well.
