              It just isn't possible for me to be objective about the Little House books. They were THE go to books for me as a child, and the comfort books as a teenager. This one is certainly written at a younger level, but I still loved reading about all of the work it took to run a farm

                Hated it. To long, to specific. Though pretty long book. Im sort of impressed. Just being truthful here.

                      (WARNING:SPOILER!)I am halfway thru, and so far it's good. It's a about Laura Ingalls Wilder moving west in the westward expansion. They have good times, bad times, almost ate times and in between times. And they almost lost jack😭😭😭! It may be a long book but it's good!
