Author Info
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.
From the Publisher
Annotation In the fourth book of the Little House series, the Ingalls family travels by covered wagon through Kansas, Missouri, and Iowa to Minnesota. When they reach their destination, Pa purchases some land and builds a log cabin with real glass windows and a hinged door. But, in addition to some good times, the family must contend with not only a blizzard but a spring grasshopper attack that ruins their crops.
First Line The dim wagon track went no farther on the prairie, and Pa stopped the horses.
Editors Note Laura and her family move to Minnesota where they live in a dugout until a new house is built and face misfortunes caused by flood, blizzard, and grasshoppers.
Editors Note 3 Laura's family's first home in Minnesota is made of sod, but Pa builds a clean new house made of sawed lumber beside Plum Creek. The money for materials will come from their first wheat crop. Then, just before the wheat is ready to harvest, a strange glittering cloud fills the sky, blocking out the sun. Soon millions of grasshoppers cover the field and everything on the farm. In a week's time, there is no wheat crop left at all. On the Banks of Plum Creek is the fourth book in the Laura Years series.
