I cannot imagine a better character building book. To live with the Ingalls through the long winter puts much of life's little frustrations in perspective. When Laura says, "For shame, Grace," after months and months of suffering, and little Grace utters the first and last complaint of the whole book, belies our own time and culture.

No, it is not compelling to be confronted with one's own weaknesses While this is not the most compelling Little House book it is a very important part of the story. No, it is not compelling to be confronted with one's own weaknesses, but this book is a vividly drawn picture of a life lived with gratefulness.

Ok, this book officially scared the holy bejesus out of me! I hate winter!!! Absolutely abhor it. My job is considered "emergency personnel " so regardless of weather conditions I am expected to make my appearance. Holy Christ! There was some serious deprivation happening in this small town of about 87 people. Wheat bread and potatoes with tea were the rations.

I can currently claim multigrain bread and tons of tea as staples in my apartment, not much else. I eat Panera a lot. And smoothie king. How am I supposed to do that in a major snow incident????
I'm thinking I should start storing some provisions-like ramen noodles and canned tomato soup. Please God never ever let me live through a winter like this. I don't think I can have the perseverance and presence of mind these pioneers had, if for no other reason than I can't stand freezing to death. This is not a series I can be subjective about - it is way too much a part of my childhood. And this particular book was one of my favorites. It has been cold here this week, but not nearly as cold as it was in the book, and I'm SO glad to have a heater and food!
I love this story and the all of the endurance and ingenuity shown over the Long Winter. View 1 comment. Jul 17, Celeste rated it really liked it Shelves: classics-i-ve-read , horror , childrens-books.
Do Lots of Acorns Mean a Long Winter and other 10 Myths About Winter
We live in troubled times. There is civil unrest and prejudice and unwarranted hatred plaguing our world, across borders and oceans and digital platforms. But I have to tell you: nothing and nobody and not any amount of money could convince me to travel back in time to trade lives with Laura Ingalls Wilder.
I love, no, I adore Little House on the Prairie. T We live in troubled times. The television series from the 70s has been my happy place all summer. Yes, this was a time before technology made our world smaller and gave us the anonymity to attack those who disagree with us with no concern about the consequences.
It was a time when neighbors helped each other, and when man had room to breathe without the crowding that is so common today. But it was also a time of extreme hardship.
If you found yourself facing a longer, harder winter than you anticipated, you could very possibly starve to death or freeze to death. Can you imagine watching your children starve and knowing there was nothing you could do? We live in a land of plenty. We have so much to be thankful for, and yet often we are so focused on the negatives that we forget to count our blessings. Remarkable how Laura is able to write a captivating, moving novel essentially about being housebound for six months during a long, harsh winter of blizzards. Perhaps more remarkable, she is able to convey the drudgery, the monotony, the physical and emotional toll of those dark days without the book becoming a horror story or pity party.
For example, moment they realize Pa can no longer play the fiddle because his fingers are too numb and tattered from the cold is utterly heartbreaking the fidd Remarkable how Laura is able to write a captivating, moving novel essentially about being housebound for six months during a long, harsh winter of blizzards.

If some of the volumes are a little sugar-coated by that eternally optimistic, always-look-on-the-bright-side-of-life-mother, this one focused on the border of long winters, the hard physical labor of grinding wheat into grain and the desperation to survive. I liked getting a pretty good picture of that, with the kids, so we could talk about world hunger. View all 6 comments.

The Long Winter was indeed that, with 7 months of blizzards nearly freezing and starving the Ingalls family to death. As a kid, I liked it for the adventure of it all, as an adult I like it for the sense of realism- they actually nearly died!
