In Little House on the Prairie, Laura Ingalls Wilder continues the saga of the Ingalls family, pioneers facing the challenges of the West. In this installment, Pa decides to bring the children to Indian Country where there is still open territory. The family must ford a swollen river that nearly drowns them, and then for a time, the beloved family dog Jack is lost, and nearly shot, being mistaken for a wolf. Young Laura, and her sisters, embark on experiences both frightening and marvelous, as Pa and their new neighbor, Mr. Edwards, quickly build a house, and the family celebrates with fiddle music and dancing. But life out West is also filled with the unfamiliar. Wolves that howl, and Indians that march through their home, teaches the Ingalls family that there is more to this territory than land and sky. Young readers of Wilder’s autobiographical series will cherish stories about Ma, Pa, Laura, and her sisters Mary and Carrie.
