Laura Ingalls Wilder has captivated generations with her stories of pioneer life, the Little House books. Now Sarah Miller tells the story of the Ingalls's journey west and life on the prairie from Ma's point of view. Narrator Elizabeth Marvel compels listeners to empathize with Caroline. Vivid descriptions depict the dangers of frontier life, such as swollen rivers, thin ice, and prairie fires as well as the emotional challenges of loneliness, unending labor, and Caroline's ever-present fear of her Osage neighbors. Listeners experience her terror and her competence. Marvel bares Caroline's soul, and her voice guides our emotions. Even male children's voices sound natural and full-bodied. This is an intimate, detailed look at frontier life. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2018]
