The Little House Books: The Library of America Collection

The Little House Books: The Library of America Collection - Laura Ingalls Wilder Received this as a Valentine's Day gift from my husband. I love the set and am thoroughly enjoying rereading the entire series. These stories and the writing made such an impact on me in my childhood. Ingalls-Wilder's descriptions of daily life -- the harshness of living in the wilderness or the sheer joy of receiving a simple, unadorned rag doll for Christmas -- astounded and captivated my imagination. Though this edition does not have any illustrations, I still remember the ones in the original books quite well, and I prefer the uninterrupted text and the manageable size of the books themselves.
