  • Fantastic way to start such a wonderful series.

    Charles Ingalls and his family have been finding living in Kansas difficult. No only do they have issues with Native Americans but also with wild animals, particularly wolves, and weather issues which make it very difficult for Charles to support his wife, Caroline, and their growing family of little girls.

    Unhappily, Charles decides that it's necessary to move to another part of the country and start again, leaving behind friends that he has made and a place he loves. The journey into Minnesota takes the family to various places but finally, they think they may have found just the place on the banks of Plum Creek.
