Read an Excerpt

Little House in the Big Woods

Chapter One

Once upon a time, sixty years ago, a little girl lived in the Big Woods of Wisconsin, in a little gray house made of logs.

The great, dark trees of the Big Woods stood all around the house, and beyond them were other trees and beyond them were more trees. As far as a man could go to the north in a day, or a week, or a whole month, there was nothing but woods. There were no houses.

There were no roads. There were no people. There were only trees and the wild animals who had their homes among them.

Wolves lived in -the Big Woods, and bears, and huge wild cats. Muskrats and mink and otter lived by the streams. Foxes had dens in the hills and deer roamed everywhere.

To the east of the little log house, and to the west, there were miles upon miles of trees, and only a few little log houses scattered far apart in the edge of the Big Woods.

So far as the little girl could see, there was only the one little house where she lived with her father and mother, her sister Mary and baby sister Carrie. A wagon track ran before the house, turning and twisting out of sight in the woods where the wild animals lived, but the little girl did not know where it went, nor what might be at the end of it.

The little girl was named Laura and she called her father, Pa, and her mother, Ma. In those days and in that place, children did not say Father and Mother, nor Mamma and Papa, as they do now.

At night, when Laura lay awake in the trundle bed, she listened and could not hear anything at all but the sound of the trees whispering together. Sometimes, far away in the night, a wolfhowled. Then he came nearer, and howled again.

Little House in Brookfield

Chapter One
Hotcakes and Sugar Syrup

Caroline blinked and rubbed her eyes. Wiggling her toes under the sheet, she stretched her arms above her head as high as she could.

"Caroline!" Three-year-old Eliza tugged on Caroline's sleeve. Caroline put her finger to her lips. "Hush!" she whispered, as Eliza's bright eyes sparkled up at her. "You'll wake Martha!"

Martha, sound asleep on the other side of Eliza, had the linen sheet pulled right up to her chin. Martha was the oldest sister. She was eight years old, and she didn't like it when Caroline or Eliza woke her up.

Hazy shafts of light began spilling through the window as the rising sun awakened the dark, sleepy sky. Caroline sat up and wriggled her way to the foot of the bed. She peeked around the curtain that separated the two beds in the room. The sheet on the boys' bed still covered two big lumps. Her brothers, Joseph and Henry, were not yet awake.

But Mother was. Her brisk footsteps echoed back and forth over the wooden floor in the kitchen below. Caroline could hear fat pork sizzling in the frying pan, and she knew the sweet smell of hotcakes would soon fill the whole house.

Mother's footsteps were loud and firm as she climbed the stairs to the children's room. Her straight black hair was neatly pinned behind her head, and her green eyes already looked tired. "Good morning, Caroline and Eliza," Mother said as she peered through the stair railing.

Every morning, Mother looked at the girls' bed first, expecting to find Caroline awake and ready to help her start the day. Caroline loved helping Mother and making her smile. Especially now, when Mother didn't smile nearly as much as she used to.

Little House on Rocky Ridge

Chapter One
A Big Surprise

Rose jumped to her feet so fast, her stool toppled over. The book she was reading slid off her lap. Before she could grab it, it hit the floor with a loud thud.

Grandma Ingalls' head jerked up in surprise, and she laid down her sewing. "Gracious, child! You startled me."

"It's Mama!" Rose shouted. "I can hear her whistling!"

Grandma leaned forward to hear better. "So it is," she said. "Where did the time get to? Run and wake Aunt Mary from her nap while I put the kettle up for tea."

It had been hard for Rose to be good that day. Mama had promised a surprise when she and Papa came from work. Rose had tried to guess what it might be.

"Is it a dog?" she had asked Grandma. Ever since Nero, the big -black Saint Bernard, had gotten sick and died, Rose had wanted another dog more than anything. But Grandma wouldn't tell.

Rose was so distracted by her curiosity that she had stitched her quilt pieces backward. She had spilled her milk, even though she was seven and a half years old. She had read the same page in The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe over and over and promptly forgotten every word!

She rapped on the closed bedroom door. "Aunt Mary, get up. Grandma is making tea," she called out. Rose ran back across the dining room to the open parlor window. The sweet spring air poured into the room, tangling the thin white curtains.

Rose could hear birds singing their hearts out. But clearer than them all was the sound of Mama's whistling. Grandma often teased Mama for being unladylike. "Whistling girls and crowing hens always come to some bad ends, Laura," Grandma would say.

But Rose didn't care about Mama being unladylike. Mama whistled when she was happy, so hearing her always cheered Rose up...
