Meet Laura Ingalls, the little girl who would grow up to write the Little House books.

Laura’s family’s first home Minnesota is made of sod, but Pa builds a clean new house made of sawed lumber beside Plum Creek. The money for materials will come from their first wheat crop. Then, just before the wheat is ready to harvest, a strange glittering cloud fills the sky, blocking out the sun. Soon millions of grasshoppers cover the field and everything on the farm. In a week’s time, there is no wheat crop left at all.

ON THE BANKS OF PLUM CREEK is the fourth book in the Laura Years series.
