LITTLE TOWN ON THE PRAIRIE by Garth Williams

LITTLE TOWN ON THE PRAIRIE

From the "Little House Books" series, volume 7

KIRKUS REVIEW

These books are written in the third person, as if they were fiction, but actually each successive volume provides another panel in the autobiography of the author This one is for distinctly older girls than its predecessor, as Laura secures her first post as school teacher, and puts her own school days behind her. (And young Wilder appears on her horizon, surprisingly-to her-acting as her escort whenever occasion warrants Not quite so surely successful as her earlier books, but once more a revealing and intimate picture of life in the Dakota territory, summers on the homestead, winters in the prairie town, socials, suppers, spelling bees, revivals, church, school, literary societies --and adolescent ambitions and interests. For some reason, the almost-a-young lady Laura isn't quite as real as the child of the wilderness.
