As with all of Laura Ingalls Wilder books this one is excellent. A wonderful way for children (and adults!) to glimpse into the lives of the pioneers.

I have read this series countless times, to myself and to my children. It's a joy every time! However, it is scarier reading now than when I was a child: blizzards, hunger, raging rivers, fireballs from the sky. As a child, it sounded adventurous. As an adult, I realize how much this family overcame and how dangerous their lives really were.

This book never came with a charm. SURPRISE! This is a fun and engaging story! The way the girls are so excited over finding little colorful beads that the indians left behind is adorable. The "possibly dangerous" encounters with the indians, the neighborly charecters, and mostly the end......I'll let you read, but it says "Carry on!"

What a simpler time, though not an easy frontier life, this book illustrates family life, being safe & wholesome reading. We love those twinkles in pa's eyes.

A side note for those who think this book (and series) is just for girls. My boys (ages 8 and 11) love these books.

What's not to love? Indians, Instructions on building your own cabin, hunting, wandering down trails finding stuff, digging wells, HUGE wolves, ... All things my boys love.

If you you have boys, don't dismiss this series.

The detailed descriptions are amazing. You feel as if you are there with Ma, Pa, and the girls as they are going about their adventurous life.

Such a wonderful book!!

An amazing story of pioneer life and courage. My only reservation with the text is the way that Native Americans are sometimes portrayed/spoken of . . . clearly there was deep-seated prejudice during the time period, though Wilder herself does not seem impacted by it.

The Ingalls move to Kansas because of all the settling and cutting of trees in the woods where they had lived previously. You get to understand how life on the road would be like in that time. This is such an adventurous and historical account! I learned how houses were built back then, how people treated one another, how the Native Americans were viewed in that time by various people, and likewise how they viewed settlers. It was very educational and filled with adventure and fun.
