Reviews - What do customers think about New Dawn on Rocky Ridge (Little House)?
Rose Wilder Mar 10, 2007
Continues the story of Rose Wilder Lane, Laura Ingalls' daughter, at the turn of the century. Interestingto hear what all the 'new' inventions were at the time and to see what Laura was like as an adult. Rose, however, sounded as if she could be quite a brat!
Just Did Not Like Dec 12, 2006
This book is tied with On the Banks of the Bayou for worst in a series. As for New Dawn, far too much was devoted to the saga of Miss Sarah; Elsa Beaumount/traveling man; and Paul stringing Rose along. On the Banks of the Bayou, Rose doesn't even appear to be the same person. Which I can understand someone maturing but Rose was always wishing for a large beautiful house to live in(like her friend Blanche Coday) and complaining about being poor. She travels to Louisiana to live with Eliza Jane who has a huge house with an electric light in the kitchen, beautiful, expensive furniture and a hired girl, but suddenly Rose is ashamed of wealth. Which is confusing because three months earlier she is grumbling because her parents are too poor to send her to Mountain Grove Academy where her rich friend Blanche is attending school. In Louisiana she has nothing for her classmates, her uncle Perley and his family or her Grandmother Wilder. Rose seems to be even more self-centered while in Louisiana than she was in Missouri.
This book is a must read!! Nov 4, 2006
I feel in love with this seris when I was about 7 years old. My Aunt gave me the first book in this seris and I was hooked. Thias book is one of my favorites. It has some sad parts, but it talks about a young girls journey into womanhood. I think that every young girl should read this book.
Amazing prose from a Laura and Rose point of view Sep 10, 2002
Special thanks to Roger Lea McBride and family for the "trip" to DeSmet and giving us Laura's voice once more, even though it was heartbreaking for all involved. Equally impressive was Rose's saga while living in town. The girl was quite a firecracker. Again, just as charming as Little House, but the storytelling is a bit more complex and more reflective of who Rose was. This series truly equals the charm and storytelling of Laura's story. Kudos to those who thought to bring this series to print.
A Time for New Beginnings... Apr 3, 2000
Rose and her family are still living in the little town of Mansfield. There, they are doing the best they can to get back on their feet and return to Rocky Ridge Farm. It's a big year for Rose and filled with many changes. For example, she witnesses the dawn of a new era as she celebrates the turn of the new century. Besides all the hard work, there's still love in the air for Rose! "New Dawn on Rocky Ridge continues the story that Laura Ingalls Wilder told of her own childhood, a story that has charmed generations of readers, including me."
