First Four Years
Follow Laura and Almonzo through their first four years. Laura isn't sure she wants Almonzo to be a farmer, for it seems unprofitable to her. Almonzo asks her for three years to prove that he can be a successful farmer, and they work hard to build their farm despite storms, sickness, and debt. However, it is not all hardship - Laura has a baby daughter, Rose, who brightens their lives.
Several of the original (black-and-white) Little House books have been reformatted, and now feature life-like covers.

At this time, all of the have been reprinted, again with illustrations and full-color illustrated covers.
