On the Banks of Plum Creek

This most recent Little House on the Prairie book that we finished followed the life of the Ingalls family through two happy, turned tough, years after they left Indian Territory.  Years of attending school and church, grasshoppers, blizzards, times together and times apart take the reader on a roller coaster of empathetic emotion.  We enjoyed learning of Pa’s ingenuity as he found ways to get food for his family and to keep warm.  If you have watched any of the TV series you will enjoy getting to know the real Nellie Olson.  After reading On the Banks of Plum Creek you will look forward to continuing to follow this family as they grow and move on to new challenges and excitement.
