In this book, Laura and her family are travelling to live in Minnesota. To buy a lovely dig out and crops, Pa sells the horses to the landowner and he later on buys some new ones. Later in the story, Pa builds a great wooden house for the family to live in. During this story, the two girls start school again and there they meet horrible, mean and haughty Nellie Oleson who laughs at the "country girls" though they have to nice friends. The family are devastated when their crops are eaten and ruined by grass hoppers, and lots of other problems. But anything can be sorted out for the hard working Ingalls. Rating: 9/ 10, recommendation: anybody and everybody.
