Read full description of the books:
Are you hungry yet?
Much of Laura's childhood was spent in near-starvation. While they always had something to eat, it was never enough for the family to be satisfied.
Thus when Laura wrote about Almanzo (her future husband)'s childhood, she focused on the most idyllic parts and what she wanted for her own childhood and her child - which was a full stomach and stable home. Almanzo simply ate. He ate ham and chicken and turkey, and dressing and cranberry jelly; he ate potatoes and gravy, succotash, baked beans and boiled beans and onions, and white bread and rye ’n’ injun bread, and sweet pickles and jam and preserves. Then he drew a long breath, and he ate pie. I swear, my stomach rumbled every ten minutes!
After a book of this, I began searching for a cookbook (and luckily, there are books aplenty based on this series: The Little House Cookbook, My Little House Cookbook - which I cannot wait to try)
Now, the entire plot of Farmer Boy did not solely revolve around food - we also get a look into farm life from the perspective of a wealthy farmer.
Almanzo's father loved farming and did his best to impress that love to his son - with great success! There was no time to lose, no time to waste in rest or play. The life of the earth comes up with a rush in the springtime Reading as Almanzo completed farm chores and tamed his oxen kindled my brief (but fervent) desire to become a farmer in fifth grade (well, until the impracticality of city-life ruined that dream!)
That being said, not even Almanzo' s cushy childhood was left untouched by the harshness of living in the late 1800s. If the teacher has to thrash you again, Royal, I’ll give you a thrashing you’ll remember. There was one crazy scene where their teacher cracked a whip around the school room due to some seriously rowdy teens (could you imagine the look on the PTA Mom's faces?)
While this one was not as endearing nor as thoughtful as Laura's other novels, I certainly enjoyed reading it. This was fun way to learn about life a hundred years ago.
Read by Cherry Jones and accompanied by Paul Woodiel on the fiddle. Love this audiobook.
