The Long Winter

The fledgling town of De Smet in the Dakota Territory is hit hard by the brutal winter of 1880-1881. Laura, Pa, Ma, Mary, Carrie, and little Grace face the winter as best they can, but soon, blizzards have covered the town in snow that piles up to the rooftops, cutting the town off from supplies and trade. The settlers do whatever they can to keep their houses warm, and food stores begin to run dangerously low.

To save the town from starvation, young Almanzo Wilder and a friend brave the conditions, set off across the prairie in search of wheat. But even if they can find it, can the Ingalls family endure until spring — and until the trains can make it through again? The sixth, Newbery Honor-winning book in the Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House series is a powerful tale of a town — and a family — that must lean on one another to survive.

Description

About The Author:

Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 in the log cabin described in Little House in the Big Woods. She and her family traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest. Later, Laura and her husband, Almanzo Wilder, made their own covered-wagon trip with their daughter, Rose, to Mansfield, Missouri. There, believing in the importance of knowing where you began in order to appreciate how far you've come, Laura wrote about her childhood growing up on the American frontier. For millions of readers Laura lives on forever as the little pioneer girl in the beloved Little House books.
