Professional reviews

"This title, seventh in the Little House series, is once again narrated by Cherry Jones, who is just right for the part. This book depicts the changing nature of the prairie, documenting the way it is being tamed and settled as people begin to cluster their homes into towns. Laura's own life is changing, too, as she begins to work, have a social life, and step out with Almanzo Wilder and his team of beautiful horses. Jones's enthusiastic, slightly husky voice expresses impetuous Laura perfectly, and she is equally delightful at creating Pa's humor and Ma's refined restraint. This production provides hours of quality family entertainment. J.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
