This is the second to last book in the Little House on the Prairie series. I enjoyed it very much. While reading it, I looked back and thought about the first books in the series and I realized that so much has changed in the life of the Ingalls family since then. And despite all that, their pioneer spirit is still the same throughout it all. If you haven't read Little House in the Big Woods, or Little House on the Prairie yet, I highly recommend you do. They're both classic tales, that show the true heart of the American spirit.
Laura Ingalls is 15, and is teaching school in a neighboring town. She and Almanzo Wilder start to get better acquainted with one another, and he often takes her for rides in his sleigh and buggy. Mary returns from college during her holidays to visit her family and they all have a wonderful time. Soon Laura gets engaged, and she moves into her own little house on the prairie.
