The Long Winter

By Laura Ingalls Wilder, Publisher: Harper Collins

The Long Winter is used in Units 22-24.

From the publisher: “The adventures of Laura Ingalls and her family continue as Pa, Ma, Laura, Mary, Carrie, and little Grace bravely face the hard winter of 1880-81 in their little house in the Dakota Territory. Blizzards cover the little town with snow, cutting off all supplies from the outside. Soon there is almost no food left, so young Almanzo Wilder and a friend make a dangerous trip across the prairie to find some wheat. Finally, a joyous Christmas is celebrated in a very unusual way in this most exciting of all the Little House books. ”

We like this particular edition because it has full-color illustrations by Garth Williams. It is a better quality paperback and well worth the extra two dollars.
