Product Description:

In this novel authorized by Little House Heritage Trust, Sarah Miller vividly recreates the beauty, hardship, and joys of the frontier in a dazzling work of historical fiction, a captivating story that illuminates one courageous, resilient, and loving pioneer woman as never before--Caroline Ingalls, "Ma" in Laura Ingalls Wilder's beloved Little House books.
In the frigid days of February, 1870, Caroline Ingalls and her family leave the familiar comforts of the Big Woods of Wisconsin and the warm bosom of her family, for a new life in Kansas Indian Territory. Packing what they can carry in their wagon, Caroline, her husband Charles, and their little girls, Mary and Laura, head west to settle in a beautiful, unpredictable land full of promise and peril.
The pioneer life is a hard one, especially for a pregnant woman with no friends or kin to turn to for comfort or help. The burden of work must be shouldered alone, sickness tended without the aid of doctors, and babies birthed without the accustomed hands of mothers or sisters. But Caroline's new world is also full of tender joys. In adapting to this strange new place and transforming a rough log house built by Charles' hands into a home, Caroline must draw on untapped wells of strength she does not know she possesses.
For more than eighty years, generations of readers have been enchanted by the adventures of the American frontier's most famous child, Laura Ingalls Wilder, in the Little House books. Now, that familiar story is retold in this captivating tale of family, fidelity, hardship, love, and survival that vividly reimagines our past.



Ask any man or woman of a certain age and they will say that they have at least a passing familiarity with the story of Laura Ingalls Wilder and her family, either from the classic series written by Wilder, or from the popular television series of the 1970’s. In Caroline, Little House, Revisited author Sarah Miller examines one period of the Wilder family’s history, when they journeyed to Kansas to settle and claim land in that new territory.

The narrative comes from a new source, that of Caroline Quiner Ingalls, mother of Laura, Mary, Carrie, Frederick and Grace. The pioneer adventure of the family takes on new relevance and meaning when seen through the eyes of a wife and mother who has known hardship and hunger in her life, and who means to keep her children from that fear and hunger. Caroline is a woman who deeply loves her husband, and their marriage is indeed a partnership, even as Charles Ingalls moves the family throughout the Midwest, dreaming of the perfect homestead for their family.

Although this book covers a brief period in the Ingalls’ family history, readers will come away with a strong sense of Caroline as wife and mother and how she rose to meet the challenges placed before her. Caroline was a woman of deep faith and drew upon that faith often as she faced the trials of traveling through and living on the mostly unsettled prairie. The family ultimately traveled back to their original homestead after some setbacks, but their time in Kansas had a significant impact on their lives as evidenced in the “Little House” series.

Caroline, Little House, Revisited is beautifully written, lyrical and evocative prose that transports readers to the scene with ease, be it the wide, sweeping grasses of the prairie or a rushing, deep river that must be traversed with horse and wagon. Author Sarah Miller has captured the spirit of a strong pioneer woman and put it to paper for us here and now in the twenty-first century, to read, digest and reflect upon. Travel back in time and meet Caroline Ingalls – you won’t be disappointed.
