This book covers the same time period as On the Way Home book by Laura Ingalls Wilder. The difference is that Little House on Rocky Ridge tells of the same story, but from the point of view of Rose Wilder, Laura and Almanzo’s only daughter. They travel from DeSmet to Southern Missouri where they settle on Rocky Ridge farm with the secret $100 the family has hidden.
Meet Rose Wilder, Laura Ingalls Wilder’s daughter, and the last of the Little House girls.
Rose and her parents, Laura and Almanzo, say good-bye to Ma and Pa Ingalls and Laura’s sisters. In a covered wagon containing all their possessions, they make their way across the drought-stricken Midwest to the lush green valleys of southern Missouri. The journey is long and not always easy, but at the end is the promise of a new home and a new life for the Wilders.
Little House on Rocky Ridge is the first book in The Rose Years, an ongoing series about another spirited girl from America’s most beloved pioneer family.
