Again a great book to read with your children. (Okay, I'm biased because my parents read the whole series to me.) Little House in the Big Woods is about the Ingalls family when they lived in the Wisconsin woods - hunting, trapping, and farming for a living. It has loads of details about every day life and the family and community life in such a secluded setting. There is danger from the animals in the woods - panthers, bears, badgers, bees, etc. It also talks about simultaneously loving the woods and animals and also living off the woods through hunting. Interesting for anyone thinking of moving to a primative cabin. Also great for kids because of the simplicity of the lives Laura and Mary lived - so happy with a little spoon of sugar!!
