Started on audio, finished in print.

The almost instantaneous transition from being essentially in isolation to being surrounded by noisy neighbors and incessant construction and development is striking and hard to conceive of in this day and age. There are a lot more worries in this book - and most of them are not about wolves of the lupine variety.

I'm reading the series in order; so far I like this least of the little house books. it's slow, not much happens.

Book 5 is a pleasant read - I think perhaps in this one the Ingalls are finally settled. As in each of the previous books we get to see history unfold. In this one we get to see tar paper, train track building, claims, claim jumping, town building and even murder. Through it all there is a clear view of how Laura will eventually become the writer writing these books.
