What's The Long Winter About

Publisher Summary

The adventures of Laura Ingalls and her family continue as Pa, Ma, Laura, Mary, Carrie, and little Grace bravely face the hard winter of 1880-81 in their little house in the Dakota Territory. Blizzards cover the little town with snow, cutting off all supplies from the outside. Soon there is almost no food left, so young Almanzo Wilder and a friend make a dangerous trip across the prairie to find some wheat. Finally a joyous Christmas is celebrated in a very unusual way in this most exciting of all the Little House books.

This is one of my favorite books in the Little House series. As a kid, I think I loved it because of the way Laura and her family had to innovate to solve the difficult problems that arose from a particularly hard winter. It’s also fun that Almanzo comes back into the story in this book. Even if you’re feeling a bit bored with the other Little House books, it might be worth skipping ahead to give this one another try!
