This is quite literally the transcription of Laura Ingalls Wilder's diary. The first and last chapters are written by her daughter, Rose, to set the scenes. It looks like it is designed to be read by young fans of the Little House series, but for the most part, it is a somewhat dry log of weather and crops. Older fans who are interested in the context of the stories will get more out of it, especially the period photographs included. A quick read.
