There were no people. There were only trees and the wild animals who had their homes among them. Wolves lived in the Big Woods, and bears, and huge wild cats. Muskrats and mink and otter lived by the streams.
Foxes had dens in the hills and deer roamed everywhere. To the east of the little log house, and to the west, there were miles upon miles of trees, and only a few little log houses scattered far apart in the edge of the Big Woods.

So far as the little girl could see, there was only the one little house where she lived with her Father and Mother, her sister Mary and baby sister Carrie. A wagon track ran before the house, turning and twisting out of sight in the woods where the wild animals lived, but the little girl did not know where it went, nor what might be at the end of it. The little girl was named Laura and she called her father, Pa, and her mother, Ma.
In those days and in that place, children did not say Father and Mother, nor Mamma and Papa, as they do now. At night, when Laura lay awake in the trundle bed, she listened and could not hear anything at all but the sound of the trees whispering together. Sometimes, far away in the night, a wolf howled. Then he came nearer, and howled again. It was a scary sound.
Laura Ingalls Wilder's Pioneer Girl
Laura knew that wolves would eat little girls. But she was safe inside the solid log walls. One night her father picked her up out of bed and carried her to the window so that she might see the wolves. There were two of them sitting in front of the house. They looked like shaggy dogs.
They pointed their noses at the big, bright moon, and howled. Jack paced up and down before the door, growling. The hair stood up along his back and he showed his sharp, fierce teeth to the wolves. They howled, but they could not get in. The house was a comfortable house.
Upstairs there was a large attic, pleasant to play in when the rain drummed on the roof. Downstairs was the small bedroom, and the big room.

The bedroom had a window that closed with a wooden shutter. The big room had two windows with glass in the panes, and it had two doors, a front door and a back door. All around the house was a crooked rail fence, to keep the bears and the deer away.
In the yard in front of the house were two beautiful big oak trees. Every morning as soon as she was awake Laura ran to look out of the window, and one morning she saw in each of the big trees a dead deer hanging from a branch.
Pa had shot the deer the day before and Laura had been asleep when he brought them home at night and hung them high in the trees so the wolves could not get the meat. Plot summary[ edit ] Original front cover see dust jacket above The novel describes the homesteading skills Laura observed and began to practice during her fifth year see comment on her age, above. It does not contain the more mature yet real themes addressed in later books of the series danger from Indians, serious illness, death, drought, and crop destruction.
Hard work is the rule, though fun is often made in the midst of it. Laura gathers wood chips, and helps Ma and Pa when they butcher animals and preserve the meat.
This is all in preparation for the upcoming winter. Fall is a very busy time, because the harvest from the garden and fields must be brought in as well. The cousins come for Christmas that year, and Laura receives a doll, which she names Charlotte.
They return home with buckets of syrup, enough to last the year.
Laura remembered that sugaring off, and the dance that followed, for the rest of her life. Each season has its work, which Laura makes attractive by the good things that result. In the spring, the cow has a calf, so there is milk , butter and cheese.
Everyday housework is also described in detail. That summer and fall, the Ingalls again plant a garden and fields, and store food for the winter.All night long, the wind howled lonesomely, but Pa played his fiddle and sang, keeping the family safe and cozy.
This book is unique as it appeals to all ages who never get so much old to be a snob.
