The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder

The Long WinterThe Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder is the 5th of the Little House series about Laura’s pioneering childhood on the American prairies. It tells of the winter when the blizzards are so early, long and severe that the trains can’t get through and the school is closed. Laura’s family must twist hay for fuel and hand grind their seed wheat for food. It is a story of desperation and disappointment, incredible resourcefulness and hard work, coldness and darkness, boredom and fear. Yet this story is readable and engaging. Laura and her family, Pa and Ma and sisters Mary, Carrie and Grace, are drawn gently and enjoyably, as they make their way through the hardest winter they have ever seen or heard of.
