The Long Winter

by Laura Ingalls Wilder

This is my favorite entry in the Little House series. The Ingalls family is settling down near the new town of DeSmet, South Dakota and their second winter there proves to be a nasty one. Mrs. Wilder does a great job of telling the tale, foreshadowing the long winter in the beginning and going on to tell how people cope as the cold weather hits and refuses to let up. One is almost tempted to think that the Ingalls family might not make it! Anyway, I'll have to find a way to keep this one on my shelf.
