The Ingalls Family versus the WorldLaura and her family drove their covered wagon all the way to Minnesota to begin life anew.Their new house?

Ma is not pleased ( especially when a cow manages to get through the roof!) but the girls found little ways to be amused.

And there 's family- all together and happy.Except, the crops are ruined.

With little research and no family to ely on, his new way of life you 're trying out, riding high on the hog after that wheat crop comes through, can do to you?

" And by the way, Caroline, Pa does n't actually now what 's best, so badl do not wan him leave when it might blizzard.

And be outside for FOUR DAYS with nothing to eat but the children 's Christmas candy. " All that yelling aside, this is reason ( not Tolkien) that I wish to live in hill.

Sorry, I 'm yelling again.Moments I loved: Christmas.

Ma keeping the family together and strong while Charles is gone, making money to make up for their lost wheat, or when blizzards come through and he 's missing.

If you ere a fan of the V show " Little House on the Prairie, " everal of the town characters are first introduced in the " Plum Creek " book, including mean Nellie Oleson.

What a brat.) These stories have held up well over time and are still excellent children 's books, with one caveat about the blatant racism toward Indians in book 2, he one named " Little House on the Prairie. " In hat essa, the family had oved to Kansas and knowingly settled in what was still Indian Territory ( a foolish move, but there 's no point arguing about it nearly 150 years later).
