The adventures of Laura Ingalls and her family continue as they leave their little house on the prairie and travel in their covered wagon to Minnesota. Here they settle in a little house made of sod beside the banks of beautiful Plum Creek. Soon Pa builds a wonderful new little house with real glass windows and a hinged door. Laura and her sister Mary go to school, help with the chores, and fish in the creek. At night everyone listens to the merry music of Pa's fiddle. Misfortunes come in the form of a grasshopper plague and a terrible blizzard, but the pioneer family works hard together to overcome these troubles.

And so continues Laura Ingalls Wilder's beloved story of a pioneer girl and her family. The nine Little House books have been cherished by generations of readers as both a unique glimpse into America's frontier past and a heartwarming, unforgettable story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plum Creek On The Shores Of Plum Creek what could you say it was a loving and caring book. Telling you about Laura, Mary, Charles, Caraline and baby Carry's life they had thier sad moments and thier happy moments everything that they went threw was in that book I think that if you like the old fashion kind of books then you would definatly enjoy this marvalous book. It was about how the Ingall's moved from the big woods into the prairie they left there little log cabbin and all of there loved ones. They left everything behind except there dog Jack. Jack was laura's best friend and companion they made lots of new friends and thier crops were destroyed by grass hopper's but it seemed like every chalenge they had, they concored. they lived in a little dirt house that was pretty much under ground and at the beggining they had an ox fall threw there roof. They enjoyed going swimming in the creek that was in thier back yard and Laura was always getting in to trouble because she liked playing near the creek. Laura and her sister's loved lisining to her pa when he played the fiddle that is what they liked the most. Read these books when you get a chance they are great.
