About a quarter century ago, Dan and Margie settled in the Missouri Ozarks, on forty acres, about ten miles up the road from the farm of Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of the famous Little House books. There they have lived a peaceful, laid-back, Jubilee like lifestyle, sharing time with God, children and animals. After homeschooling their five children, they began Homeschool Helpers, to try to help other Christian homeschool families by providing activities and encouragement.
Laura Ingalls Wilder's classic novel The Long Winter tells the riveting story of the winter of 1880-81 with three day blizzards, forty ton trains stuck in the snow, houses buried in snowdrifts and a town that nearly starved. How much of her story was fact, and how much was fiction? Using newspaper articles, autobiographies and historical accounts, the story of the monster winter of '80-81 is told.
A large collection of Laura Ingalls Wilder's most inspiring articles, written prior to and seed stock for her Little House books. She offers timeless wisdom on country living and warm memories that later became her beloved books. Extensive notes and setting, like a book within a book, by Dan L. White, author of Laura's Love Story, Devotionals with Laura, and Laura Ingalls' Friends Remember Her.
