This book is about a country girl named Laura and her family. She has 3 sisters: Mary, Carrie, and Grace. Mary is the oldest child, and is blind. Laura is the second oldest, Carrie is the third oldest, and Grace is a baby, and is the youngest. They travel from Plum Creek to Silver Lake in search of a homestead. But getting this homestead would not be so easy. They got a lot of unexpected visitors, and surprises. I LOVE this book and all the other books in the Little House series. THESE ARE GREAT BOOKS!!! They are AWESOME!!!! I very much recommend that you read them.
