Om forfatteren

Wilder was born near Pepin, Wisconsin; attended school in DeSmet, South Dakota; and became a teacher before she was 16, teaching for seven years in Dakota Territory schools. She and her husband, Almanzo Wilder, farmed near DeSmet for about nine years and then moved to Mansfield, Missouri, where vis mere they lived out the rest of their days. Wilder did not write her first book, Little House in the Big Woods, about her early years in Wisconsin, until late in life, on the urging of her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane. It was first published in 1932. She followed this with Farmer Boy (1933), a book about her husband's childhood in New York State. She then completed a series of books about her life as she and her family moved westward along the frontier. Little House on the Prairie (1935) records the family's move to Kansas. On the Banks of Plum Creek (1937) describes the family's move to Minnesota. By the Shores of Silver Lake (1939) records the family's move to South Dakota, as do the final three books in the series: The Long Winter, Little Town on the Prairie (1941), and These Happy Golden Years (1943), which ends with her marriage to Almanzo Wilder. Three of Wilder's books were published posthumously: On the Way Home, a diary of her trip to Mansfield; The First Four Years, an unfinished book about her first four years of marriage; and West from Home, letters she wrote on a visit to her daughter in San Francisco, none of them up to the quality of her earlier books. At her best, Wilder employs a clear, simple style, a wealth of fascinating detail, and a straightforward narrative style. Her tales of a strong, traditional frontier family that endures the hardships of the late eighteenth century are seen through the eyes of a child, which endears them to young readers. Her work is possibly the best example of historical realistic fiction for children. (Bowker Author Biography) vis mindre

Like many others, I first read this as a kid. I checked out the paperback version and eagerly remarked to the librarian, "I'm rereading this as an adult." She nodded. "I used to read these as a kid," she agreed. This...is written a style that children will enjoy. The writing is absorbing and yet restrictive in its amount of detail.

This is a book about cruelty to dogs. It's also super racist, and it's not so accurate. The book is stated to take place in the 1890s. People had been traveling in covered wagons long before that. 1847 in particular. People traveled alongside their wagons, which were jammed with their whole life's belongings. Children who were under the age of five stayed in the wagon, or if they were ill. Dogs walked alongside the humans, if the family took dogs with them. Or unless they were small dogs, again, in the wagon. There is little mention of illnesses, dirty water, and hardly any of mosquito bites. Ma conveniently sprains her foot when a log falls on it. Give me a break. I almost stopped reading then and there. But it healed super quick with only pretty bruising. No mention of stretches, no mention of her slowing down in any real way. Her foot would more likely be broken. Orrr maybe she was just super lucky. The way this was written, the author did not want any real hardship to come to her characters. This annoyed me as an adult.

There is just--an utter lack of knowledge in these books about how historical events and people really functioned, and what mattered to them. It came across as ignorance, not "I'm omitting stuff for the story." It wasn't "if I have them in the wagon, and they have a dog, this story will be more interesting." I understand that these books were based off of Ingalls' grandmother's journals, likely when she was a child. She was looking through the world from a child's eyes. Still, everything's so--sanitized.

Jack is stated to be a brindle bulldog. Pretty! I like bulldogs, so I warmed immediately. He is also pointless as a character. In the first book, he's barely mentioned. The family could have found him in the third book and nothing of note would be lost in the whole series overall. They make the dog walk under the wagon, a punishing distance. There is no mention of food or water for him until the family is already in the house really. Laura is worried about him, and her mother says "Jack can swim." Across an enormous lake. No. Realistically, he would be dead of heat stroke, starvation, drowning, or just plain run away. If he were a Newfoundland, I would be more forgiving. Or even a Jack Russell terrier--we had one and she calmly climbed a mountain and wasn't even tired. She slept well later that night. We gave her plenty of water on the hike, and even urged her to drink some when she was not thirsty. An English bulldog would be -unlikely- to hold up to all that.

It took all I had not to drop the book in disgust right then and there. AND THE BOOK KEEPS GOING. OH, HE'S FORGIVING? OH WOW. PLOT CONTRIVANCE. ANIMAL MISTREATMENT, I SAY. He spends the second half of the book chained up inside, repeatedly made to stay inside--did the family never fashion a leash out of cloth? They hardly played with this dog. He deserves a far more adoring family. I was more attached to a fictional dog in this book than I was the humans. I cared about them less and less. The racism was at first threaded through the book, then utterly blatant and pages upon pages in the second half of the book. It aged POORLY.

I know it's going to be recommended for a long, long time. It's a staple of many a childhood. I am not one of the people who will be doing that.

The diary of a trip from South Dakota to Mansfield, Missouri in 1894. They left a drought stricken farm in S.D. and traveled to the Ozarks for a new beginning. This book answers questions like what happened next? with this diary, a discovery made since Mrs. Wilder's death in 1957 this question can now be partly answered.

Little House in the Big Woods

Laura Ingalls provides an account of the childhood of her future husband in this book. Similar to the first installment, it is very charming and offers a children-friendly perspective on life on a 19th-century farm, specifically a prosperous one. The narrative is filled with numerous stories, and while the plot meanders a lot, the central focus is on the theme of Almanzo's love for farm life and his work with horses.

Despite the overall appeal, I'm deducting points because of to what I would term the "procedural aspect" of the book. The detailed descriptions of food preparation and farm chores became a bit overwhelming for me. Although interspersed with charming scenes of farm life, these intricate details, at times, overshadowed the narrative's flow. People who love reading details like this will enjoy the novel even more.… (mere)
