Family Saga
  BooksInMirror | Feb 19, 2024 |
Laura Ingalls Wilder is beginning life with her new husband, Almanzo, in their own little house. Laura is a young pioneer wife now, and must work hard with Almanzo, farming the land around their home on the South Dakota prairie. Soon their baby daughter, Rose, is born, and the young family must face the hardships and triumphs encountered by so many American pioneers.

And so Laura Ingalls Wilder's adventure as a little pioneer girl ends, and her new life as a pioneer wife and mother begins.

This is the last in the Little House series, looking at the first four years of Laura and Almanzo’s marriage. They homesteaded during this time and tried to get a farm going, and they had a daughter, Rose.

This was published after Rose’s death. The book was an unfinished manuscript. I still really enjoyed it, even if it wasn’t as Laura would have published it if she’d ever taken time to finish it. There were still plenty of brilliant descriptions of things. During the four years, their farm (at least the crops) never did flourish, though they did well with their animals. The weather (as it often is with farming) was the culprit – hail, a tornado (or cyclone, as Laura called it), drought, fire. Also blizzards in winter factored into their lives, as it did with anyone on the prairies. I have a beautiful “full color collector’s edition”, which has very nice glossy colour illustrations. ( )

I can understand now the claims that this book is so vastly different from the rest of the series. The main thing I noticed is that there is a lot of hardship, just like the rest of the books have, but while the rest of the books also make sure to talk about the happy things mixed in, this one barely does. I get the feeling that Laura Ingalls Wilder, or perhaps her daughter Rose Wilder Lane, who edited the previous works, intentionally included those happy moments to soften the difficult ones. No one did that for this manuscript. Not that there weren't a few happy moments, but they were meager compared to the loss of crops time after time, the bad weather, the fire, the sickness. And Almanzo comes across pretty terrible in this book. He convinced Laura to give farming 3 years when she tells him that she doesn't really want to live a farmer's life due to the hardship (which she was absolutely correct about, obviously) before they were married, so it's not like she waited until afterward to tell him she didn't want him to farm, and that, if farming isn't so much a success for them that she's okay with continuing, he'll quit. After 3 years of losing their crops every year, though, he talks her into "just one more year." To me, that sounds like a man who has no plans to ever give up his own way. I haven't read Wilder's diaries from after this time, and I don't plan to at this time, but I do hope that he wasn't as manipulative as he seems in this book.

For this whole series, my enjoyment of the book was greatly enhanced by the audiobook narrator, Cherry Jones, who does a fantastic job. If you've ever considered reading this series, or have already read it and have occasion to listen to the audiobooks, I say do it! ( )

Published in 1971, this unfinished and unedited manuscript has a completely different tone and writing style than the rest of the series. In past rereads of the Little House series, I had attempted to read this book several times but didn't make it past the first chapter. Part of me wishes they had not published this ninth book, but it does make one wonder how much editing Rose Wilder (Laura Ingalls Wilder's daughter) contributed to the other eight books and also how much of the prior writing was fictionalized versus fact. This ninth book sounds more factual or at least less embellished and I must say the story itself is quite depressing. It is missing the usual feel-good Christmas chapters and charm found in the prior books. As with the entire series, there are some racist passages. I'd recommend using those paragraphs as teaching moments for children or even ourselves, instead of skipping reading the books entirely because they contain some unpleasant aspects of U.S. history.
