In the frigid days of February, 1870, Caroline Ingalls, her husband Charles, and their little girls, Mary and Laura, leave the familiar comforts of the Big Woods of Wisconsin and head west to settle in a beautiful, unpredictable land full of promise and peril--the Kansas Indian Territory. The pioneer life is a hard one, especially for a pregnant woman with no friends or kin to turn to for comfort or help. The burden of work must be shouldered alone, sickness tended without the aid of doctors, and babies birthed without the accustomed hands of mothers or sisters. But Caroline's world is also full of tender joys. In adapting to this strange new place and transforming a rough log house built by Charles into a home, Caroline must draw on untapped wells of strength she does not know she possesses. For more than eighty years, generations of readers have been enchanted by the adventures of the American frontier's most famous child, Laura Ingalls Wilder, in the Little House books. Now, that familiar story is retold in this captivating tale of family, fidelity, hardship, love, and survival that vividly reimagines our past.

Sarah Miller writes the Little House story from the perspective of Caroline Ingalls or Ma.
She was chosen by the Laura Ingalls Foundation and remained quite true to the original story.
Miller captures the love Ma had for her children, husband and extended family.

What did Ma of Little House on the Prairie think about leaving family in Wisconsin to travel to Kansas with Pa, Mary and Laura. This novel is a retelling of the beloved Wilder classic from Ma's perspective. While the book is enjoyable, it borrows dialogue and plot lines from the original story. A unique rendition of the original.
