A detailed diary from the author of the beloved Little House series, chronicling her journey with her family from South Dakota to Missouri. This middle grade nonfiction book is an excellent choice for tween readers in grades 7 to 8, especially during homeschooling. It's a fun way to keep your child entertained and engaged while not in the classroom.In 1894, Laura Ingalls Wilder, her husband, Almanzo, and their daughter, Rose, packed their belongings into their covered wagon and set out on a journey from De Smet, South Dakota, to Mansfield, Missouri. They heard that the soil there was rich and the crops were bountiful--it was even called the Land of the Big Red Apple. With hopes of beginning a new life, the Wilders made their way to the Ozarks of Missouri.During their journey, Laura kept a detailed diary of events: the cities they passed through, the travelers they encountered on the way, the changing countryside and the trials of an often difficult voyage. Laura's words, preserved in this book, are a fascinating account of life and travel at the turn of the twentieth century, and reveal Laura's inner thoughts as she traveled with her family in search of a new home in Mansfield, where Laura would write her Little House books.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Laura Ingalls WilderPublisher: HarperCollinsPublished: 10/20/1976ISBN: 9780064400800Pages: 128Weight: 0.19lbsSize: 7.61h x 5.15w x 0.35dAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 5033 / On the Way HomeReading Level: 5.3 / Interest Level: Middle Grade / Point Value: 3
