For fans of Laura Ingalls Wilder Little House books, a wife and mother’s view of what that life must have held. Told from Caroline Ingalls’ point of view and so well written that you are in the wagon with her as they travel and homestead. You enter into her thoughts as she tries to be a comfort and help to her children and husband. I look around at our lavishly furnished RV and wonder at the strength and resolve and love of the pioneering women to maintain a home. This is no leaking and muddy prairie schooner. What ease we have in the modern world to care for our families even with the trials of modern life.
