This is a wonderful book. Anyone who reads it will learn alot about life before modern conveniences. Although Laura's family works for everything they have and just to stay alive, life was yet alot simpler back then. The story is from the point of view of Laura Ingalls when she was 6 years old. There is alot of detail and simple joy in this book.
