Laura's family moves to an underground house in Minnesota before building a fine wooden house. Mr. Ingalls gets everything to build his house on credit, because he knows his wheat crop will be so good when he harvests, but a grasshopper swarm settles in the area and eats absolutely everything that grows. Pa has to leave to find work elsewhere while Mrs. Ingalls, Laura and her sisters manage on their own until he returns.
Best in the series yet. There was a real story (which put it ahead of the first two books) and there were no Native Americans, so there were no nasty remarks about the "awful Indians" that marred "Little House on the Prairie." ( )

I read this for the "A Western" part of my 2019 reading challenge. It has always been one of my favorite series, I love the whole family, from Martha to Rose. ( )
