Reading this story as an adult it really is striking how different the hard lives of isolated settlers were from our modern society. The book is a stark reminder that we don't know how easy we have it - we might be isolating away because of COVID, but that is a drop in the ocean compared to living in a small family of two adults and three children in a log cabin in the middle of the woods, responsible for all your own food, and spending the winters indoor with snow piled around the house.

Told from the point of view of Laura as a 4 year old, the story is almost too saccharine to be true. Pa hunts and reaps, tells stories, and plays his fiddle. Ma works hard but cheerfully, churning butter, washing, cooking.

The children mostly behave, and when they are not perfect there is a swift beating (which all feel is well deserved, and has been handed down the generations - pa tells the stories of when his pa beat him), in a way that seems excessive to modern sensibilities - whipping a four year old with a strap for striking her sister once who was tormenting her! There is a good sprinkling of morality tale too - their cousin is a lazy boy who cries wolf and doesn't help and no-one believes him when he gets stung all over by bees.

The sheer skill that everyone has - how to make butter, how to cure skins, how to smoke meat, how to carve wood, how to tap maple syrup, hot to make hats etc etc - is really impressive. Having dabbled a bit in home crafts makes me even more in awe.

But then it really was all life and death, wasn't it? It is a lovely story, sugar swirls poured on snow, dances, rag dolls. But you don't see the women giving birth in the wilderness, and you don't see the time the bear doesn't wander away, or the time there isn't enough food to get through winter.

The environmental position is interesting. There is the time Pa holds his hand from shooting, because of the splendour of the stag and the bear. There is the fact they eat no meat all summer, to allow the young animals time to grow. But there is no suggestion that it isn't the right thing to do to smash up the bee hive and take all the honey (the bees will find another tree, and start again with the left over honey scraps), and there is great joy in the wonderful threshing machine.

In general, a fascinating slice of life from a very different world. ( )

One of my reading challenges was to pick up a favorite book from my childhood. So glad I picked up this heartwarming gem. It was a great pick-me-up during this anxious and uncertain time. ( )

Revisiting a favorite from childhood. Laura's stories of life in 1880s Wisconsin are a balm to my jaded 21st century imagination. Wilder's simple and straightforward storytelling captured little Laura's innocence and curiosity and explained the habits of daily life in early America. ( )

“When the fiddle had stopped singing Laura called out softly, “What are days of auld lang syne, Pa?”

“They are the days of a long time ago, Laura,” Pa said. “Go to sleep, now.”

But Laura lay awake a little while, listening to Pa’s fiddle softly playing and to the lonely sound of the wind in the Big Woods. She looked at Pa sitting on the bench by the hearth, the firelight gleaming on his brown hair and beard and glistening on the honey-brown fiddle. She looked at Ma, gently rocking and knitting.

She thought to herself, “This is now.”

She was glad that the cosy house, and Pa and Ma and the firelight and the music, were now. They could not be forgotten, she thought, because now is now. It can never be a long time ago.

I read this book and several of it successors as a child in the 1970s, but it is nice to re-read them as an adult with a different perspective. It is a perspective on a lifestyle very different from anything we have experienced, where Laura and her sisters, Pa and Ma live in the log house in the middle of nowhere, with very few interactions beyond occasional visits to and from various uncles, aunts and cousins, living their lives according to the seasons and the dictates of nature, and growing or making most of what they need to live. It provides a welcome contrast and escape from current reality. These editions are beautifully illustrated with the original Garth Williams illustrations. ( )
