Publisher Description:

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 Almanzo picks Laura up to take her back home for the weekend. Though Laura is still young, she and Almanzo are officially courting, and she knows that this is a time for new beginnings.

The First Four Years

Laura Ingalls and Almanzo Wilder have just been married! They move to a small prairie homestead to start their lives together. But each year brings new challenges—storms, sickness, fire, and unpaid debts. These first four years call for courage, strength, and a great deal of determination. And through it all, Laura and Almanzo still have their love, which only grows when baby Rose arrives.

Reading with my 12 year old son. What a great series. So well written. We have come to love this little family ❤️

My kids grew up with the Little House books; I'm now buying them for my grandkids.
Sandra R on Oct 5, 2020
for multiple reasons:<br /><br />1. language arts curriculum<br />2. my grandfather was born in 1887, in Dakota Territory, in a dug out; and as this series covers that geographical area, and the conditions under which my family lived, my children love reading about it.<br />3. I'm from the Dakotas. Again, family history.<br />4. We live off grid; and have similar experiences.

Do the books come in a box for storage or is it just the individual books?
Rachel on Nov 27, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The box is open on the side of the book end so you will still be able to see the individual books of the set. They are nice and firm wrapped in cardboard, so it saves room on the shelf.
Are these Paperback or hard cover?
A shopper on May 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This a set of 9 paperback books
does this box set have color illustration?
A shopper on Mar 17, 2018

Are these hardcover or paperback?
Rachel V on Mar 8, 2016

My mother too read these books to me several times starting when I was five years old She only read the books where Laura is younger (not The Long Winter or These Happy Golden Years) After our third round I started reading them all over again myself several times - ALL of them and as many more about her that I could find As an adult I have even read them all a few more times admiring the adults of the series more My own set is now quite worn and my own daughter is about to turn five I'm ordering this set for her/us and hope she will love and learn from them as much as I have We who love the books generally despise the TV versions My wish is that those who dislike the TV version but have never read the books would try the books They are very different!(I also HIGHLY recommend The Little House Cookbook even if you don't want to actually cook anything It is full of interesting food history)

Reading every night I read this entire nine book series to my boys three times in a row They loved these books so much that as soon as we finished the series they begged me to start all over again They feel like they grew up with Laura and her family After reading these books they have no interest whatever in the movies or television series They just cannot equal the true events of this family's lives They loved the fact that these events really happened to a real person Laura Ingalls Wilder was a woman who lived from covered wagon to space age and she told the events of her life with such beauty and detail This is a series every American family should read
