Little House on the Prairie Book Book PDF Summary

During a winter season in the late 1800s, the woods of Wisconsin were beginning to become too crowded with new settlers. Laura Ingalls’ family decided it was time to find a new place to live. The family begins moving west in their wagon; they plan to cross: Wisconsin, Iowa, Kansas. To eventually settle in the open prairies. During this journey, the family encounters a river, with higher than usual waters and a strong current. Jack the family dog falls from the wagon as they cross the stream and gets swept downstream by the water.


The family continues on their journey despite the loss of their beloved Jack. They, fortunately, begin to cross forested areas which give them a place to rest at night. However, when trying to sleep the family is reminded they are not alone in the woods. The hoots of owls and the howls often keep the children awake. It was one night that Laura’s eyes meet with another set of glowing eyes in the dark staring at her which turns out to be Jack, who managed to find the family again.

In the midst of their travels, the family reaches an open spot of land which is near the Verdigris River, which they decide to make their new home. Laura’s father who is referred to as Pa begins building a house for the family to live in. Meanwhile, Laura and her sister Marry do small chores and help look after their baby sister Carrie. One day while Pa is out hunting, he stumbles across his nearest neighbor Mr. Edwards who is living as a bachelor. The two men work together to finish each other’s houses.

Pa finishes the house along with furniture within the home, such as a bed for Ma. He also even digs a well for the family to get water and builds a stable for the horses. There are other settlers who begin moving into the general area. Though they are separated by miles, they form a small community together and help each other. However, everything is not peaceful in their community, the prairies are also shared by Indians. The Indians have been forced out of their former lands by the government. These lands have then become inhabited by ‘the white man’ and as a result, have built many resentments towards the white man and don’t interact with them.

One day while Pa is out hunting, two Indians visit their home. Ma greets the Indians warmly and respectfully. She provides the Indians with a meal and even gives them cornmeal and Pa’s tobacco which they requested as they left. Ma reveals that she was secretly scared while the Indians were there when Pa returns. Pa consoles her and assures them that the Indians aren’t a threat unless they feel threatened.

As time along with the seasons’ pass, the family begins to develop an insect problem. Mosquitoes are in high number and everyone in the family falls ill due to them. A traveling doctor finds the Ingalls family in a dire state and doctor along with one their neighbors Mrs. Scott nurse them back to health.

The following early spring Pa hears a rumor, which spoke about the white man being made to leave the Indian’s territory. Pa is in disbelief about this news and desperately hopes it not to be true. However, as the spring goes on the Indians begin to fight amongst each other. The conflict revolved around whether to fight the white man or move out of their land. The Osage chief eventually decides to spare the life of the white man, with the other Indians agreeing to his command. This decision, potentially stems from the moment Pa and the Indians shared the previous winter. The Indians begin to head south and with their movement, peace begins to return to the Prairie.
