Recently Read: Little House in the Big Woods


The first book in Wilder's series, taking place in 1871, is at the same time romanticized and realistic, and perfect for children and adults with an open mind. It tells of growing up in the Wisconsin wilderness with siblings and two loving parents, surrounded by dangerous predators. Life is harsh, sometimes brutal, and the ways in which the family uses everything around them, organic or not, to survive is educational and fascinating. The narrative is also filled with tales of the past and premonitions of the future (such as new technology which saves days worth of hard work). The illustrations by Garth Williams are lovely, as always, and were based on his visits to the locations described in the text.
