Book Recommendation- Young Pioneers

Author: Rose Wilder Lane

Many readers may not know that Laura’s daughter, Rose Wilder Lane, was also an author of some renown. Although Rose mostly focused on newspaper articles and serial stories, she also wrote short novels based on her mother’s pioneer stories. One of these, Young Pioneers, is perfect for readers hoping for another inspiring story of settlers beating the odds to make a life for themselves on the prairie. Newlyweds Molly and David are still teenagers when they make the journey west to the open prairie in search of free land. Over the course of the year, Molly, David, and their newborn son endure harsh blizzards, mounting debt, and grasshopper plagues to make their dreams come true. Fans of Laura Ingalls Wilder will find that much of Rose’s message of resilience and self-reliance will resonate with them.

    I read a book once by Rose Wilder Lane, but I can’t remember which one it was. I’ve always meant to read more of her books, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet because I’m always so busy reading the latest books about Laura Ingalls Wilder!
