Description

  • The true story of Laura Ingalls Wilder, her family, and their adventures on the Midwestern frontier in the 1870s and 1880s
  • Perfect for ages 8 to 108
  • This nine-book paperback box set of the classic series features the classic black-and-white artwork from Garth Williams.

    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.

    Little House in the Big Woods

    Meet the Ingalls family—Laura, Ma, Pa, Mary, and baby Carrie, who all live in a cozy log cabin in the big woods of
    Wisconsin in the 1870s. Though many of their neighbors are wolves and panthers and bears, the woods feel like home,
    thanks to Ma’s homemade cheese and butter and the joyful sounds of Pa’s fiddle.

    Farmer Boy

    As Laura Ingalls is growing up in a little house in Kansas, Almanzo Wilder lives on a big farm in New York. He and his
    brothers and sisters work hard from dawn to supper to help keep their family farm running. Almanzo wishes for just one
    thing—his very own horse—but he must prove that he is ready for such a big responsibility.

    Little House on the Prairie

    When Pa decides to sell the log house in the woods, the family packs up and moves from Wisconsin to Kansas, where Pa
    builds them their little house on the prairie! Living on the farm is different from living in the woods, but Laura and
    her family are kept busy and are happy with the promise of their new life on the prairie.

    On the Banks of Plum Creek

    The Ingalls family lives in a sod house beside Plum Creek in Minnesota until Pa builds them a new house made of sawed
    lumber. The money for the lumber will come from their first wheat crop. But then, just before the wheat is ready to
    harvest, a strange glittering cloud fills the sky, blocking out the sun. Millions of grasshoppers cover the field and
    everything on the farm, and by the end of a week, there is no wheat crop left.

    By the Shores of Silver Lake

    Pa Ingalls heads west to the unsettled wilderness of the Dakota Territory. When Ma, Mary, Laura, Carrie, and baby Grace
    join him, they become the first settlers in the town of De Smet. Pa starts work on the first building of the brand new
    town, located on the shores of Silver Lake.

    The Long Winter

    The first terrible storm comes to the barren prairie in October. Then it snows almost without stopping until April. With
    snow piled as high as the rooftops, it’s impossible for trains to deliver supplies, and the townspeople, including Laura
    and her family, are starving. Young Almanzo Wilder, who has settled in the town, risks his life to save the town.

    Little Town on the Prairie

    De Smet is rejuvenated with the beginning of spring. But in addition to the parties, socials, and “literaries,” work
    must continue. Laura spends many hours sewing shirts to help Ma and Pa get enough money to send Mary to a college for
    the blind. But in the evenings, Laura makes time for a new caller, Almanzo Wilder.

    These Happy Golden Years

    Laura must continue to earn money to keep Mary in her college for the blind, so she gets a job as a teacher. It’s not
    easy, and for the first time she’s living away from home. But it gets a little better every Friday, when Almanzo picks
    Laura up to take her back home for the weekend. Though Laura is still young, she and Almanzo are officially courting,
    and she knows that this is a time for new beginnings.

    The First Four Years

    Laura Ingalls and Almanzo Wilder have just been married! They move to a small prairie homestead to start their lives
    together. But each year brings new challenges—storms, sickness, fire, and unpaid debts. These first four years call for
    courage, strength, and a great deal of determination. And through it all, Laura and Almanzo still have their love, which
    only grows when baby Rose arrives.
