Little House in the Big Woods is the first book in Laura Ingalls Wilder’s semi-autobiographical saga of a pioneer family in the latter half of the 19th century. In this initial volume, young readers meet Laura, her sister Mary, baby Carrie, and Ma and Pa Ingalls, who house themselves in a log cabin, situated in the Wisconsin woods. The little girls have their chores, and Ma and Pa work hard to provide for their family. The children study in a one-room schoolhouse. In summer, the woods are a delightful place for Laura to play, meeting forest creatures and learning about nature in the early years of her childhood. There are also the grim realities of frontier life: the hog must be slaughtered for food, and Pa supports the family by trapping wild creatures. There are no neighbors in close proximity, so it is a festive occasion when the children’s cousins come for a holiday visit or when the family has a sugaring-off at Grandma’s house. When a winter blizzard descends on the woods, young readers learn just how difficult survival can be on the edge of the wilderness, and will root for the Ingalls’ perseverance.
