By the Shores of Silver Lake (color illustrations) (Little House #5)

by Laura I Wilder


Quick Overview

Laura and her family journey into the unsettled wilderness of the Dakota territory and become the first settlers in the town of DeSmet.


For the first time in the history of the Little House books, this new edition features Garth Williams' interior art in vibrant, full color, as well as a beautifully redesigned cover. The adventures of Laura Ingalls and her family continue as they move from their little house on the banks of Plum Creek to the wilderness of the unsettled Dakota Territory. Here Pa works on the new railroad until he finds a homestead claim that is perfect for their new little house. Laura takes her first train ride as she, her sisters, and their mother come out to live with Pa on the shores of Silver Lake. After a lonely winter in the surveyors' house, Pa puts up the first building in what will soon be a brand-new town on the beautiful shores of Silver Lake. The Ingallses' covered-wagon travels are finally over. Size 0.69" H x 7.46" L x 5.64" W, 290 pages
