THE LONG WINTER

From the "Little House Books" series, volume 5

KIRKUS REVIEW

Yet another panel in the saga of the Ingalls' family, and a good one. Laura is thirteen when the winter of 1880-81 brings danger to Dakota territory. Just in time the crops are harvested and the little family moves into the tiny village. But even so, no one was prepared to meet seven months of almost incessant blizzards, with no trains bringing food into the snowbound community. This is a story of courageous imagination in the face of near despair -- and of how the spirit that helped build our country carried the Ingalls and their neighbors through to safety. In this book, the brothers of Farmer Boy come into the picture, and the Wilder and Ingalls families are brought together. Sell as true story material.
