What I Read Last
I was a little doubtful when I started this book. I thought it would be a bit boring but I was pleasantly surprised to be wrong. The author talks about each of the places Laura and her family lived. She discusses what the landscape was like and the type of vegetation and flowers were around that the Ingalls family would have used to survive. The best part were the text examples taken from the book. I felt like I was re-reading the books again which now I really want to do. There were great photos of the family sprinkled through out the book and information and pictures of all the homesteads they lived on. The author has been to all of them and shares her experiences visiting them. I have been to two sites, South Dakota and Missouri, and would love to visit more, especially Almanzo’s childhood home in Malone, New York. If you are a fan of Laura Ingalls Wilder, this is a must read. This book publishes at the end of September.
One of my favorite books of the series!

What I Am Reading Next
This is the third and final ( I think ) book in this series. I am excited to get back into this fantasy world that Sarah J. Mass created.
