After "These Happy Golden Years", this book seems like a standalone. The story is told well, but here are my reasons for not including it in the Little House set. It begins with a narrative of Almanzo and Laura's proposal and wedding that differs in some details from the account in the book before. Laura calls Almanzo "Manly" in this book, but not in any others. In addition, there were some very not golden years when they were first married and I really missed having Ma and Pa in the story. It seems like they would have been close enough to visit more often.

A wonderful collection of children's stories. Great for a long car ride.
