Pales in comparison May 19, 2008
Honestly, this book is a compilation of some of Laura's best stories and not a very well written one at that. It was a rip off of the high points of the Laura Ingalls Wilder series.
I found the two main characters entirely unlikable. They were bland and boring. We were told to like the characters and sympathize with the characters, but I found myself almost amused when the grasshoppers attacked their crops.
The writing completely dull. Every storyline had been done before. There was absolutely no originality. The only reason it is getting two stars is because she has Laura for a mother. It is no wonder that her books are not nearly as popular as her mother's.

I read this book from our local library as "Let the Hurricane Roar". As you say, same book. I read all the Little House books as a child and loved them, of course. I have the collection here and wanted to add Rose's books to my collection. I like Rose's manner of writing also and wish they didn't change the title.
I have had excellent service from this site Books and will be looking for more hard to find items thru your company.

Well written . Being a fan of Little House Books, I enjoyed reading something written by Laura and Almonzos daughter.
good young reading book Jul 10, 2006
This book falls right in line with the Laura Ingalls Wilder style and type of book. Any young person who enjoys reading fiction would benefit learning about our country's history and still be entertained.
