3 stars By Olivia, Oct 03 2016
The adventures continue as Laura and her family leave Kansas and travel by covered wagon to Minnesota. Here they settle in a little house made of sod by the banks of Plum  Creek. Then Pa builds a wonderful new house with real glass windows! Laura and her sister Mary go to school where they are called country girls by Nellie Oleson. Such a simple life it was back then tending to their chores and going to church service on Sunday they did no work on Sunday's which is how it should be today!
