(1939 Newbery Honor Book) After an attack of scarlet fever leaves her sister Mary blind, 12-year-old Laura Ingalls and her family finally decide in 1879 to leave their homestead in Plum Creek, in this fifth book in the Little House series for readers 8 to 12. Traveling by train for the first time, the Ingalls arrive in De Smet, a new settlement in the Dakota Territory; here they find new opportunities as Pa goes to work for the railroads and Laura studies to become a teacher, but also danger, as the girls are threatened by a wolf. This edition includes Garth Williams's classic line drawings at the start of each chapter.
