There are no houses for miles around, just the Ingalls family: Charles and Caroline (Pa and Ma), Mary, Laura, and baby Carrie.
Laura tells the gentle and often funny story of growing up in the Big Woods of Wisconsin in the 1860's. Here we follow the day-to-day events of the life of Laura Ingalls over the course of the seasons. The story begins as the family prepares for winter, storing away food and preserving meat. During the long nights Pa tells stories and entertains the girl's with his fiddle. In the spring the family makes maple syrup. Summertime brings long days of hard work in the fields, and the fall brings the harvest. As the seasons change the chores and play-time of Laura and her big sister, Mary, also change. Little House in the Big Woods is a delightful look at family life on the frontier.
