All about The Long Winter Audiobook Free
The Long Winter is a historical fiction children’s audiobook written by Laura Ingalls Wilder and published in 1940, the sixth of nine audiobooks in her Little House Audiobook series.
It is set in southeastern Dakota Territory during the severe winter of 1880–1881, when she turned 14 years old.
A timeless, essentially true story of the near starvation of a snowbound new prairie town and the brave families that survived it, told from the viewpoint of 13-year-old Laura Ingalls. One of the best audiobook in this series!
I’m excited that Laura has finally met the Wilders. With all the blizzards and the family being stuck inside for the majority of The Long Winter Audiobook, the story could have easily gotten boring or repetitive, but as always the author kept things interesting even if it isn’t as lighthearted as it once was.
I also once again appreciated seeing how they dealt with things like blizzards back then. Such a stark contrast to when we get blizzards today and get freaked out if the power even goes off. The Ingalls always impress me with how resourceful and strong they are.
The adventures of Laura Ingalls and her family continue as Pa, Ma, Laura, Mary, Carrie, and little Grace bravely face the hard winter of 1880-81 in their little house in the Dakota Territory. Blizzards cover the little town with snow, cutting off all supplies from the outside.
Soon there is almost no food left, so young Almanzo Wilder and a friend make a dangerous trip across the prairie to find some wheat.
Finally, a joyous Christmas is celebrated in a very unusual way in this most exciting of all the Little House books.
