Publishers Description

The Little House books have captivated generations of readers with theirstory of the little pioneer girt Laura Ingalls growing up on the American frontier. Now the Little House story continues with The Rocky Ridge Years, books that tell the story of Laura and Almanzo Wilder's daughter, Rose.

The first three books in the series, Little House On Rocky Ridge, Little Farm In the Ozarks, and In the Land of the Big Red Apple, describe the Wilders' covered-wagon journey to Missouri and their first two years in their new farmhouse. On The Other Side of the Hill continues their story as the young Wilder family struggles to overcome a series of natural disasters that beset their little farm.

Reviews - What do customers think about On the Other Side of the Hill (Little House)?

Should Have Been Better Researched or Edited  Dec 11, 2006
This book provided good reading and there are parts I enjoy such as the mean teacher, the feast they had during the hog butching and Blanche's birthday party.
I've read it several times but each time there is one point that really bugs me. Since I have been reading the Little House series plus Ingalls family biographies since I was in the fifth grade, I am very familiar with the life of Laura and her family.
It is always a source of annoyance when someone(sited as an expert) writes about a particular subject but makes glaring errors and mistakes about situations and the characters.
This book offers a prime example. I noted an error that should have been caught by either the author or an editor.
To wit: Almanzo brings home a Sears & Roebuck catalog in which people can mail order merchandise from the catalog. Wow! A new discovery in shopping! Laura nor Almanzo remembers living in South Dakota and looking through a Montegomery Ward catalog(mail-order) and purchasing a set of glassware or Laura purchasing a saddle for her pony from the Montegomery Ward catalog. This information was provided in the book The First Four Years also carrying Roger Lea MacBride's name. One of the pieces from the glassware set was the bread platter etched with the words 'Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread'.
Of course MacBride died and his daughter had taken over the writing at this point. But still, I think it is shameful when a fan knows the subjects and details better than the "experts".
The Other Side of the Hill!!!  Dec 11, 2006
I like this book!! It is a great book!! It talks about Rose when she is growing up and she is with her mother and father which are Laura Ingalls and Almanzo Wilder. I think out of all the Little House Girls, Rose is my favorite but sometimes she can be a brat and spolied espically on New Dawn on Rocky Ridge.
Disappointing series for Little House fans  May 14, 2004
I found this entire series of books to be disappointing because it was more cynical than the original series. On doing some research I discovered that chapters in least one of the final books were actually taken (almost verbatim) from Rose's writings for an adult audience. The story is totally out of character with the series. Rose and her friend sneak out for several nights to meet a traveling salesman. He eventually makes a pass at her...
The listed author for this book (MacBride) died before the last few books were published and whether he had anything to do with the books is questionable.
This series is okay as light reading for adolescents but if you are looking for a piece of americana, and/or a wholesome book for your child this is not the best choice. It grossly fails to live up to the original series of books. The Caroline series is a better choice.
A fantastic book!  Jan 11, 2004
On the Other Side of the Hill is a terrific book! Nine going on ten, Rose gets to participate in a shivaree after a wedding and goes to her friend Blanche's party. A cyclone comes, and a long drought and a fire invade Rocky Ridge Farm, but Rose and her family help each other through the hard times, and at the end they must move into town. Rose is sad to say good-bye to Rocky Ridge Farm, but knows she'll later return.
On the Other Side of the Hill: Book review  Jan 11, 2004
I loved On the Other Side of the Hill! It was so exciting that I could never put it down. Out of all the books I've read about Rose, this is my favorite.
