Publisher's Summary

While Laura Ingalls grows up in a little house on the Western prairie, Almanzo Wilder is living on a big farm in New York State. Here Almanzo and his brother and sisters help with the summer planting and fall harvest. In winter there is wood to be chopped and great slabs of ice to be cut from the river and stored. Time for fun comes when the jolly tin peddler visits or, best of all, when the fair comes to town.
This is Laura Ingalls Wilder's beloved story of how her husband, Almanzo, grew up as a farmer boy far from the little house where Laura lived.
Correlates to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts.

Oh My...Part Two

This narrator has obviously never been in the country.

The chapter about Almanzo training his calves...

"Giddap" is pronounced as though one is saying "Git up", not "Gha DAP" with emphasis on DAP, as she says it. Worst yet, "Gee" is pronounced with a hard G sound, yet she pronounces it as "Ghee".

Could you folks at Audible please make sure that future narrators have full command over the English language before you turn them loose to read? Thanks.
