Fifteen-year-old Laura lives apart from her family for the first time, teaching school in a claim shanty twelve miles from home. She is very homesick, but keeps at it so that she can help pay for her sister Mary's tuition at the college for the blind. During school vacations Laura has fun with her singing lessons, going on sleigh rides, and best of all, helping Almanzo Wilder drive his new buggy. Friendship soon turns to love for Laura and Almanzo in the romantic conclusion of this Little House book.

Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867–1957) was born in a log cabin in the Wisconsin woods. With her family, she pioneered throughout America’s heartland during the 1870s and 1880s, finally settling in Dakota Territory. She married Almanzo Wilder in 1885; their only daughter, Rose, was born the following year. The Wilders moved to Rocky Ridge Farm at Mansfield, Missouri, in 1894, where they established a permanent home. After years of farming, Laura wrote the first of her beloved Little House books in 1932. The nine Little House books are international classics. Her writings live on into the twenty-first century as America’s quintessential pioneer story.
Garth Williams's classic illustrations for the Little House books caused Laura to remark that she "and her folks live again in these pictures." Garth Williams also illustrated Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, and almost one hundred other books.From AudioFile:
The eighth in the Little House series is read by the consistently excellent Cherry Jones, whose earnest, slightly husky voice is a perfect match for the stories. Jones finds just the right pitch and tempo to capture the various personalities, and one can hear her smiling when she narrates. In this story, Laura is a grown-up young lady, who at 16 works for a living, teaching school and sewing on the weekend to supplement the family's income. She's also courted by a beau, Almanzo Wilder, who takes her out for buggy rides on the prairie. This production, enhanced by fiddle music that punctuates the chapters, provides hours of family entertainment. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
