    ITEM#: 2604418

    This nine-book paperback box set of the classic series features the classic black-and-white artwork from Garth Williams.

    The nine books in the timeless Little House series tell the story of Laura’s real childhood as an American pioneer, and are cherished by readers of all generations. They offer a unique glimpse into life on the American frontier, and tell the heartwarming, unforgettable story of a loving family.

    Little House in the Big Woods

    Meet the Ingalls family—Laura, Ma, Pa, Mary, and baby Carrie, who all live in a cozy log cabin in the big woods of Wisconsin in the 1870s. Though many of their neighbors are wolves and panthers and bears, the woods feel like home, thanks to Ma’s homemade cheese and butter and the joyful sounds of Pa’s fiddle.

    Farmer Boy

    As Laura Ingalls is growing up in a little house in Kansas, Almanzo Wilder lives on a big farm in New York. He and his brothers and sisters work hard from dawn to supper to help keep their family farm running. Almanzo wishes for just one thing—his very own horse—but he must prove that he is ready for such a big responsibility.

    Little House on the Prairie

    When Pa decides to sell the log house in the woods, the family packs up and moves from Wisconsin to Kansas, where Pa builds them their little house on the prairie!  Living on the farm is different from living in the woods, but Laura and her family are kept busy and are happy with the promise of their new life on the prairie.

    On the Banks of Plum Creek

    The Ingalls family lives in a sod house beside Plum Creek in Minnesota until Pa builds them a new house made of sawed lumber. The money for the lumber will come from their first wheat crop. But then, just before the wheat is ready to harvest, a strange glittering cloud fills the sky, blocking out the sun. Millions of grasshoppers cover the field and everything on the farm, and by the end of a week, there is no wheat crop left.

    By the Shores of Silver Lake

    Pa Ingalls heads west to the unsettled wilderness of the Dakota Territory. When Ma, Mary, Laura, Carrie, and baby Grace join him, they become the first settlers in the town of De Smet. Pa starts work on the first building of the brand new town, located on the shores of Silver Lake. 

    The Long Winter

    The first terrible storm comes to the barren prairie in October. Then it snows almost without stopping until April. With snow piled as high as the rooftops, it’s impossible for trains to deliver supplies, and the townspeople, including Laura and her family, are starving. Young Almanzo Wilder, who has settled in the town, risks his life to save the town.

    Little Town on the Prairie

    De Smet is rejuvenated with the beginning of spring. But in addition to the parties, socials, and “literaries,” work must continue. Laura spends many hours sewing shirts to help Ma and Pa get enough money to send Mary to a college for the blind. But in the evenings, Laura makes time for a new caller, Almanzo Wilder.

    These Happy Golden Years

    Laura must continue to earn money to keep Mary in her college for the blind, so she gets a job as a teacher. It’s not easy, and for the first time she’s living away from home. But it gets a little better every Friday, when Almanz

    • Better than TV
      Verified Purchase

      My granddaughter was so pleased to get the Little House books and read about things and situations that she originally thought were just some more of "grandma's stories". It pleases her that the characters in the books are her age as opposed to the TV characters which were older and into teenage difficulties as well as the challenges of living on the frontier.

    • Childhood Treasure
      Verified Purchase

      I had this series as a child and read them until they were in a million pieces. I wanted to pass them on to my daughter and read them with her. These books are classics and great entertainment for kids about 5 and up, male or female. Very easy to read with colorful discriptive writing, and simple lovely drawings. A great way to learn about the history of the Sates in a fun way, and what life was like a hundred years ago. I ordered the set for her birthday and they arrived in about a week with standard shipping in perfect shape. And they cost a fraction of what I might have paid in a store. Great value for the price!
