    Bit of a lackluster end to one of my fave seriesThis is an unfinished manuscript Laura Ingalls Wilder intended to write a full novel on her early years married to Almanzo Wilder but she passed prior to finishing the book Roger Lea MacBride adopted grandson of Rose, Laura s daughter found this manuscript after posthumously rummaging through Rose s things and decided to publish this anyway I don t wish it would ve gone unpublished but at the same time, it s just not as good as the previous books W [...]

    Dad How many stars Eleanor Daddy I m afraid I m going to have to give it four, because two bad things happened Two really bad things, you know You know Dad What two bad things Eleanor Well, view spoiler the baby getting spasms and dyingDad I know, that was really, really depressing And I have to agree with you, Eleanor, this was a surprisingly depressing book I mean, the others had bad stuff in them, that everyone fought through, but this one man It was like there was no silver lining hide spoil [...]

    Discovered in 1971 and posthumously tacked onto the previous eight volumes of the Little House series, it s obvious from the first pages that something s a little amiss here The tone is different, harder, grown up, with many details that ended These Happy Golden Years changed here, and not for the better After going off to live the life of a farmer s wife in the previous book, the same scene is revisited, with Laura telling Manly she calls Almanzo by his nickname throughout the book that he sho [...]

    This book reads differently than the previous Little House books It tells the story of the first few years of Almanzo and Laura s marriage, and how they struggled to make a living on the plains In the introduction, Roger Lea MacBride who wrote the series that follows the adventures of Rose, Laura s daughter says that this handwritten manuscript was found among Laura s papers, and that it wasn t revised and edited the way the earlier books were, perhaps because Laura lost interest after Almanzo d [...]

    Does anything ever grow on this prairie It s one thing after another blizzards, tornadoes, heat, prairie fires, hail Any thing kills the crops The most depressing installment of all Laura seems to only take pleasure in running outside, riding horses and sometimes her daughter Definitely NOT any kind of housework.But I think I will end up reading everything Laura Ingalls Wilder has ever written.

    The First Four YearsI was trying to put my finger on the real difference between the tone of this book and the tone of the other eight Little House books Laura is almost a different character here I guess that is because she is a grownup It is not exactly the fact that there is so much hardship and tragedy in this book it s that she actually gives us the hardship and tragedy, and everything else, without tempering it In By the Shores of Silver Lake, we skip over the real life death of her young [...]

    As the Introduction tells us, Laura Ingalls Wilder left a first draft to this book and it was only published after her death In many ways, it reads like a first draft it has the feeling of a rough outline of events It is developed than diary shorthand, but not as crafted as most of the Little House stories I remember reading it as a child, and then again as a young woman what I didn t quite remember is how sadness it contains This book is about, as the title implies, the first four years of Lau [...]

    Let s admit this book is boring er than the other Little House books Laura seems less of a PERSON and there s less action, adventure and young, spunky characters I personally this book would improve a lot if it were written in first person It doesn t annoy me generally that the Little House books are written in third person, but it does in this one I don t know exactly maybe because the writing is kind of boring, and sounds a bit like a quickly jotted down memoir and a bunch of personal notes on [...]

    Okay, all 9 are finished And what a ride through droughts, blizzards, a lot of baked beans and salt pork, failing wheat crops, twelve different types of buggies, hay stacks galore, and mean, terrible Nellie Olson Immensely satisfied with the series with some obvious lowpoints surrounding the treatment of Native Americans, and my god, the songs about darkies were just horrific Also a lowpoint Jesus fucking balls, Pa certainly did not give one shit about Ma He drug her all over creation just to sa [...]

    Be warned This book is very, very different from all the other books in the Little House on the Prairie series In fact, this book makes it easy to see how embellished the other books are and the positive spin that was put on them Because it was published after the death of Laura and her daughter, it is not quite complete as well It was taken directly from Laura s notebooks that were found in her belongings after her death and barely any editing was done on them That being said, this book isn t n [...]

    I grew up on the Little House books and had no idea that this story of Laura and Almanzo s first years of marriage even existed Grittier than the earlier books and sometimes quite scary that blizzard My edition has excellent illustrations by Garth Williams.

    Laurie
    This book was, finally, refreshingly honest I loved the previous 8 books, but was always a bit bothered at how Laura s true feelings were rarely described Finally hearing about the boredom that Laura felt as a new mother, about how she didn t want Manly to be a farmer, and how she occasionally hated the stink of their farm stock was quite satisfying to me And, Manly Two things about this nickname first, have I been pronouncing his name incorrectly Is it not Ahl MAHN zoh Second, I wish we had rea [...]

    I read this book when I was a child and was shocked and disappointed by it The tone is very flat and Laura and Almanzo seem like different people It seems of an outline than a full fledged Little House book I almost didn t re read it this time to finish out my re reading of the entire series, but I decided to steel myself to the task, and I m actually glad I did I knew what I was getting into, so it wasn t so shocking and disappointing this time around.This book begins by re telling the end of [...]

    This was the shit just got real variation of the Little House series I understand life was tough back then but this book was kind of jarring after all the pioneer whimsy of the other books It was also awkward since it was just written out from a manuscript It could definitely use a good edit.It was interesting as well that Laura wrote herself as kind of a weaker person in this story I know her daughter helped write the earlier books and the generation gap in the narrative voice really stuck out [...]

    Tara
    I do not consider this really a part of the Little House series Because it was just a draft found in LIW s notes after her death, it does not read the same as the previous books do Plus, it seems to be the first chapter of a new series rather than a continuation of the Laura we know from the previous books.The book s worst offense is that it actually begins before These Happy Golden Years ends, and rewrites history There s a scene before they re married where Laura tells Almanzo who is very unfo [...]

    The Little House books were the first thing I ever bought when I found out I was having a baby I first read them to my daughter when she was far too young to understand the words I was speaking When she was old enough to read them for herself, I held this one back I have heard rumors that it was unfinished or written by someone else All I know is that it doesn t fit with the rest of the series It s as if the main characters I loved so much suddenly lost their pioneering spirit They stop working [...]

    The last book written by Laura Ingalls Wilder and published long after her death.The introduction tells us that this is a rough draft published as it was written by Laura in yellow notebooks This is a poignant period of Laura s life that tells of the tragedies and joys she and Almanzo faced during their first years of marriage.Reading this again as an adult gave me a much clearer picture of how difficult life was in the late 19th century and how isolated many families in the west were.

    Laura s second baby was born and died within a page and when I finished the book, I had to go back and reread to make sure I had indeed read he d died I know this is a fragment of a book and without any editing or depth to it, but again, we got a whole damn book about a single winter and the death of a child gota page Anyway, good to know the men were all kind of dumb and hopeless I thought Almanzo surprisingly only referred to as Manly in this book and literally never called that elsewhere was [...]

    After finishing These Happy Golden Years with the optimistic, happy outlook on the next stage of life, this book was terribly sad I can see why Laura may have given up on finishing it The only bright spot was the birth of Rose It s still a powerful story that shows perseverance, patience, and promise.

    This last installment is definitely different than the rest in the series, being an unfinished manuscript that is rather unflinching in its descriptions of hardship it starts out very hopefully, with laura almanzo marrying and moving into a new house with its fancy pantry and silverware i really liked it when laura talks about being sick while she s pregnant and reading to escape how crappy she feelsd then a lot of terrible things happen in short succession and the book ends abruptly the terribl [...]

    Reread January 15, 2017.Oh, these were a fun few weeks with the Little House series My parents moved for the first time since I had lived at home and moving necessitated that all childhood mementos be returned to the children Mostly, us kids had to go through a ton of books So, my mom sent me home with the Little House books It was funny, my sisters and I went through each childhood book, debating about who should take which book it ultimately became a test of who remembered which book most dear [...]

    Roger Lea MacBride s introduction shouldn t be skipped over It explains the stark difference in tone, structure, and outlook compared to the other Little House books In a slim 134 pages, Wilder covers four years compare this to The Long Winter The chapters are divided by years instead of key events or themes Time passes rapidly, shifting without much warning from topic to topic After all, it s a draft of a story that Laura had penciled three orange covered school tablets MacBride speculates that [...]

    Audrey
    This short book is actually a draft that was discovered posthumously I expect the plan was to go back and flesh it out As it stands, it s a bare bones account of the most prominent memories of the beginning of the Wilders marriage I still have only read the first five Little House books, and that was years and years ago, so I don t remember the style of those books very well I expect this one will be quite different in contrast.I heard a long time ago that Laura hated dwelling on negative events [...]

    It was suggested to me that this last Little House book perhaps be left out of the read aloud to my boys lineup, so I revisited it on my own And I think that was a wise suggestion best to just leave the series on the happy ending of These Happy Golden Years This one is dark, very different in tone and content from the rest of the series likely because it was published after the death of Laura s daughter and was printed as is from her journals, unedited You realize immediately you re in for somet [...]

    Lynn
    Having read On the Way Home and West from Home, this book directly reflects Laura s writing style I can see that Rose s editing helped inject some dialogue and interesting structure to the other books in the Little House series Although this book was very interesting in the details of Laura and Manly s first four years of marriage, it was rather dry and duller reading by comparison Oh, boy, I could certainly relate to the perils of farming and your dependence upon the weather, etc And poor Laur [...]

    Hilary
    I suspect this is a lot closer to real life than the previous books, and that had she the motivation after Almanzo s death, Laura would have added a good bit filler with about the happy days rather than this rather emotionless retelling of those very hard years.From my now adult perspective, it s incredible to see what they went through, the hardships they endured and the work they had to do, all at the tender age of 19 Laura I wonder whether at 19 I would have had even half her maturity and s [...]

    Elizabeth
    For fans of The Little House series, I recommend stopping after Book 8 This manuscript was discovered much later and was published unedited after both Laura and Rose died It does have a much different feel to it Laura seems bitter to be the wife of a farmer and she is also a bit obsessed about money matters and debt How could she ever keep up the daily work and still go through what was ahead There was so much to be done and only herself to do it She hated the farm and the stock and the smelly l [...]

    Meghan
    I ve been working my way throught the entire Little House series on audiobook for the past few months, and I have really enjoyed it It was interesting to hear how the writing and narration changed as Laura grew older and her life grew complicated At first I didn t think I would like this one As it started, the tone seemed completely different from the first eight books, why are they calling Almanzo Manly and what s this about Laura not wanting to be a farmer s wife but as I learned about how t [...]
