I have fond memories of all the Little House books. For me they were magical. They dont make books like this any more. ( )

Probably the worst of the lost. Since it is taken from her notes, it is probably not a throughly edited piece, plus it's downright depressing. But it helps complete the story. It is worth reading as it deals with hardships and perseverance. Great opportunities to talk with kids about the difficulties of life and how to handle them. ( )

This is the final book in the Little House on the Prairie series. and was only a rough draft in Laura Ingalls Wilder's notebooks which was found after her death. Her daughter and publisher debated about publishing it, but I'm glad they did. It's quite charming and has a more adult perspective, which I found fascinating. It's also more suspenseful -- would their crops thrive or not? would they get out of debt? would they keep farming or give up? ( )

I read this about 30 years ago, and I don't remember enough to give it a real review, only that it was very sad and different in tone from the others in the series. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 006440031X, Paperback)

Laura Ingalls Wilder is beginning life with her new husband, Almanzo, in their own little house. Laura is a young pioneer wife now, and must work hard with Almanzo, farming the land around their home on the South Dakota prairie. Soon their baby daughter, Rose, is born, and the young family must face the hardships and triumphs encountered by so many American pioneers.

And so Laura Ingalls Wilder's adventure as a little pioneer girl ends, and her new life as a pioneer wife and mother begins. The nine Little House books have been cherished by generations of readers as both a unique glimpse into America's frontier past and a heartwarming, unforgettable story.
