Professional reviews

"Those who've enjoyed listening to Laura Ingalls Wilder's other audiobooks will welcome this book, the fifth in her Little House series. Once again read by the excellent Cherry Jones, this story details the realities of pioneer life--an existence touching in its simplicity and sobering in its everyday hardships. This production offers listeners hours of thought-provoking family entertainment as they stop to consider the limited winter diet of people on the frontier, along with other realities such as keeping warm and staying well on the empty pre-settlement prairies. Jones's earnest, slightly husky voice enthusiastically captures Laura's eagerness, Pa's playfulness, and Ma's more reserved and refined tones. This production is complemented by violin music, which punctuates the chapters and gives voice to Pa's beloved fiddle. J.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
