"I liked it as a book, but parts of the story were disturbing in regard to how dogs were treated. Just kept reminding myself that it was fiction. A bit far-out with some of the ideas. A quick read and hard to put down after the first page."
"238 pages. Excellent choice for summer reading for a 4th or 5th grade student. Not just for girls.....both of my boys loved this series. The popular television series is based on the "little house books" Follows the life of an early pioneer family in Wisconsin."
"I think it is a MUST to read this book if you want to understand the movie. It is MUCH better than the movie..... but makes the movie enjoyable if you read this first. An in depth look at life in another country."
"Although this is a true story , there are many parts that you would wish are not true. It is an amazing story of survival. The author's mother gives up her son ( at @ age 12) to be raised by her onorthodox psychiatrist. Burroughs defies all odds and after reading the book, I believe that he should be a public speaker and share his experiences so that children who grow up in dysfunctional families will believe that they can overcome anything!!"
