I loved reading this book too.
I liked all the details about the all the different people and places, Laura and Almanzo met on their way. As it was Lauras personal diary, I feld it was even more authentic than her other books, where she described her experiences for the young readers, smoothened the hardships etc.
I also liked the stories, Rose added at the end, especially the one about the poor man, who asked for work, right after the Wilders reached what later would become Rocky Rich Farm. Almanzo gave him some food for his family, although they were also short of everything. Perhaps he was just dewy-eyed when he gave away the food-filled pan to a stranger, but I prefer to see another sample of a wonderful character in his acting.
The book is a great addition to LIW's other books.
