9780060264215: Farmer Boy (Little House (Original Series Hardcover))

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.

About the Author:

Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 in the log cabin described in Little House in the Big Woods. She and her family traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest. Later, Laura and her husband, Almanzo Wilder, made their own covered-wagon trip with their daughter, Rose, to Mansfield, Missouri. There, believing in the importance of knowing where you began in order to appreciate how far you've come, Laura wrote about her childhood growing up on the American frontier. For millions of readers Laura lives on forever as the little pioneer girl in the beloved Little House books.



Garth Williams began his work on the pictures for the Little House books by meeting Laura Ingalls Wilder at her home in Missouri, and then he traveled to the sites of all the little houses. His charming art caused Laura to remark that she and her family "live again in these illustrations."

From AudioFile:

The New York childhood of the young man who becomes her husband is the stuff of Laura Ingalls Wilder's FARMER BOY. With her signature insight into the daily life of a nineteenth-century farm, Wilder champions the earnest hard work and family joy of Almanzo Wilder. Details abound --the techniques for training a team of young oxen, the agony of a Saturday night bath, the myriad of delicious foods at the county fair, the unrest the "big boys" cause at school, the wisdom and guidance of parents. Wilder is a keen observer, and Cherry Jones has an eager voice. Her narration is quick paced and enthusiastic as she recounts each story with an immediacy that brings the listener into each season's happenings. Fiddle music complements the recording.
