I loved these books when I was a little girl. I don't remember them individually, rather as a whole, so this re-read was part refresher and part new experience.

This is a sweet book, but it didn't really live up to my shining golden childhood memories. There wasn't really much story here - it was more a chronicling of pioneer life, and their simple joys and trials and the simple love and respect that they had for each other.

I'll admit that Pa wasn't as perfect as my shining golden childhood memories made him out to be, though. In fact, he was a little vindictive at one point... it made me giggle.

I enjoyed this one, and look forward to the rest of the series.

Heather I'm going to get around to re-reading this series one of these days. Like you, I loved them when I was a kid. Wonder if I'll feel the same way now.

Are you going to re-read the whole series or just this one book?

Becky The whole series... but I'm not sure when. LOL
