Publisher's Summary

The adventures of Laura Ingalls and her family continue as they move from their little house on the banks of Plum Creek to the wilderness of the unsettled Dakota Territory. Here Pa works on the new railroad until he finds a homestead claim that is perfect for their new little house. Laura takes her first train ride as she, her sisters, and their mother come out to live with Pa on the shores of Silver Lake. After a lonely winter in the surveyors' house, Pa puts up the first building in what will soon be a brand-new town on the beautiful shores of Silver Lake. The Ingallses' covered-wagon travels are finally over.
Correlates to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts.

Life On A Different Kind Of Prairie!

Life turned unkind for the Ingalls family on Plum Creek. Scarlet fever struck them all, leaving Mary blind, and Pa doesn't know how to pay doctor bills. But then a job working with the railroad leads them to the Dakota Territory, 'by the shores of Silver Lake'.
There are such vivid descriptions of nature, after all, Laura has to be Mary's "eyes" from now on, and there's plenty of singing (when I read the books, I used to wonder what Mary's song, "Highland Mary" sounded like; now I know)!
They settle into the surveyor's house during winter, snug as bugs, and live off the land. Laura's wild heart feels the difference of this prairie; it's so big, so quiet, so different from Indian Territory, and she yearns to go west as more and more people settle down.
But here she learns her future: she's to be a teacher. And when they hear of a school for the Blind, there's a dream to send Mary.
Expect beautiful writing, rousing tunes sung by cousins who laugh together and race little black ponies, the friendship of Mr. and Mrs. Boast, and always: there's Laura's laughing spirit!

Little house books are the best

I love little house books and I really love this book. I think that Cheery Jones is the best voice for all the little house books.
