I don't think I've ever read this book. I read all the Laura Ingalls Wilder books, but this one by her daughter, just wasn't familiar. I would so hate to be a pioneer. UGH. ( )

** spoiler alert ** I loved this book.
The beginning story of Charles and Caroline when they were first married, moved out west, and lived in a dugout. They counted on their wheat crop that they had planted to provide for them. Unfortunately, locusts came and destroyed the crop, forcing Charles to go east to find work. Caroline had a rough time without him, but made it through. I had forgotten about their first child, a son named Charles. ( )

I read the version of this story where the main characters are Charles and Caroline.
I really enjoyed the story and how their life together began. ( )

Read during Summer 2006

Short and sweet story of a young couple on the Dakota plains, trying to survive out a living and earn a homestead. There were a few familar themes from the Little House books (locust, blizzards) but it was so short that the story never really took off and it was over before it even developed. There were also a few odd typos when the character David inexplicably became Charles.
