From the Publisher:
Originally published from 1932 to 1943, Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House books are classics of children's literature, beloved by millions. But readers who last enjoyed them as children may be astonished at the quiet poetry of Wilder's prose and the force and poignancy of her portrait of the lives of American pioneers. Now The Library of America and editor Caroline Fraser present a new two-volume edition that affirms Wilder's place in the American canon, reintroducing these enduring works to readers young and old. Here, for the first time in two collectible hardcover volumes, are all eight Little House novels?brilliant narratives of the early life of Laura Ingalls and her family as they grow up with the country in the woods, on the plains, and finally in the small towns of the advancing American frontier?plus the posthumous novella The First Four Years, which recounts the early years of the author's marriage to Almanzo Wilder. This second volume includes By the Shores of Silver Lake, The Long Winter, Little Town on the Prairie, These Happy Golden Years, and The First Four Years, plus two rare autobiographical pieces that reveal real life events not included in the novels and address the inevitable question: what happened next?
A companion volume gathers Little House in the Big Woods, Farmer Boy, Little House on the Prairie,and On the Banks of Plum Creek.
Each volume features a newly-researched chronology of Laura Ingalls Wilder's life and career, and helpful notes. The volumes are also available in a deluxe collector's boxed set, The Little House Books: The Library of America Collection.
Author Bio
Laura Ingalls Wilder
Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote her first book, LITTLE HOUSE IN THE BIG WOODS, at the age of 65. This title began the nine-book "Little House" series, which was a combination of autobiography, storytelling, and American history. More than just the story of one person's life, the series is an account of the settling of the American frontier. All the books in the series were edited by Wilder's only child, a daughter named Rose Wilder Lane. In 1954, as a testament to Laura Ingalls Wilder's contribution to the world of children's literature, the American Library Association created the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award to recognize creators of children's books whose body of work represents a significant contribution to the field of children's literature. Naturally, she was the first to be honored with this award. Her legions of fans still make pilgrimages to the settings of her books and her former homes, all of which are preserved or memorialized in her honor.
