The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder (Hardcover)
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 in snow, cutting off all supplies. Soon they are almost out of food, 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 with the most exciting of all the Little House books.
