By the Shores of Silver Lake is an autobiographical children's novel written by Laura Ingalls Wilder and published in 1939, the fifth of nine books in her Little House series. It spans just over one year, beginning when she is 12 years old and her family moves from Plum Creek, Minnesota to what will become De Smet, South Dakota. The novel was a Newbery Honor book in 1940, as were the fourth through eighth books in the series.

They buried it on the low slope above the wheatfield, by the path he used to run down so gaily when he was going with Laura to bring in the cows. Pa spaded the earth over the box and made the mound smooth. Grass would grow there after they had all gone away to the west.

Laura and Mary and Carrie walked slowly along on the green shore by the rippling silver-blue water, toward the wild Big Slough. The grasses were warm and soft to their feet.

Their brightness stretched around the south shore and shone on the high bank that stood up from the water in the east and the north. Night was still shadowy in the northwest, but Silver Lake lay like a sheet of silver in its setting of tall wild grasses. Laura and Mary and Carrie walked slowly along on the green shore by the rippling silver-blue water, toward the wild Big Slough. The wind blew their flapping skirts tight against their bare legs and ruffled Laura’s hair.

The fifth book in Laura Ingalls Wilder’s treasured Little House series, and the recipient of a Newbery Honor-now . Laura takes her first train ride as she, her sisters, and Ma come out to live with Pa on the shores of Silver Lake.

Laura Ingalls and her family move from the banks of Plum Creek to the wilderness of the unsettled Dakota Territory. After a lonely winter in the surveyors' house, Pa puts up the first building in what will soon be a brand-new town on the beautiful shores of Silver Lake.

Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867–1957) was born in a log cabin in the Wisconsin woods. With her family, she pioneered throughout America’s heartland during the 1870s and 1880s, finally settling in Dakota Territory. She married Almanzo Wilder in 1885; their only daughter, Rose, was born the following year. The Wilders moved to Rocky Ridge Farm at Mansfield, Missouri, in 1894, where they established a permanent home. After years of farming, Laura wrote the first of her beloved Little House books in 1932. The nine Little House books are international classics.

But, Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote this as autobiographical and so her younger-self had to grow. Gone are the isolated cabins in Wisconsin Sniffs. Last summer I started rereading the Laura Ingalls Wilder series, and this fifth one was a delight. By the Shores of Silver Lake" covers the family's move to the Dakota territory at about 1879, when Pa gets a job working for the railroad. Laura loves being out on the open prairie, and she's fascinated when she gets a chance to watch the men preparing the ground for railroad tracks.

Wilder, Laura Ingalls. Ducks quacked among the thick grasses to the southwest, where the Big Slough began. Screaming gulls flew over the lake, beating against the dawn wind.

These are the childhood classics, on super high quality sturdy paper (the kind classy textbooks use), they are durable and glossy. Also, the garth williams illustrations have been gently colored in, and are still lovely. This is an absolute keeper. And the durable paper quality makes this worth stocking up on -- it should last for at least a generation or two.

Excellent early reader series for kids just getting acquainted with chapter books. Genuine American history from a child's viewpoint. These are classics. Sturdy with colorful pictures and large font. My daughter already read them twice and asked for the next four in the series. Great coming of age stories about having good character and working hard to overcome difficulty. Builds the value of education into a child. Why can't modern children's authors write with this level of quality and character? You won't be disappointed.

No matter how many times my family reads these true
Stories, they bring us back to when simpler times surely seemed
Like better times. We are looking forward to visiting the Wilder homestead this summer in Malone. NY. It’s just an hour and 30 minutes from our summer place and we couldn’t be more excited!! We feel quite fortunate to have had Laura’s life to reflect on and remind us of what’s truly important, family! Thank you to Laura and her heirs who keep her profound legacy alive for our children and grandchildren.

This review is for the kindle edition set of the first five books in the series. These books are a great read, we already know that. I want to talk about the kindle experience of these books.
I've been waiting for these to come out on kindle for awhile. The books separately are 8.99 as of now, and it's a little cheaper to buy this package of 5 books instead of doing it individually.
My biggest complaint about this set is the navigation. I can easily choose which book to read from the "go to" kindle menu. But, after choosing the book you want to read, you cannot further navigate into the book by the table of contents. I also bought one of the little house books not included in this set, and this problem does not occur, I'm able to navigate to different chapters if I choose. I wish I had bought these books individually to avoid this annoyance, even if it would've been a little more expensive. If you don't care about this issue I would purchase this as I have found no issues with the content.
The illustrations are all there as they are in the books, even the smaller illustrations at the beginning of each chapter.

These books were perfect for my second grader to read. These books are readable at his age yet still challenging enough exposing him to broader vocabulary words. I never read this books as a child, so it is my first time as well. Farmer Boy is better directed to a boy, but we've enjoyed the first two books.

My grandparents owned farms and I recall many of the things described in these books. Though my children do not have these experiences, These books gives them some exposure to what life is like growing on a farm. Though a bit more romanticized than I remember...

Timeless, endearing story of pioneer life. My son loves these books. His eyes get wide hearing about the daily tasks of pioneer life. On the Banks of Plum Creek has funny and suspenseful moments, like the grasshopper plague. We have really enjoyed the audible version of these books.

My kids (ages 6-13) and I love The Little House series. We love to read about how American settlers of the West worked hard & persevered in spite of horrible circumstances—with their faith intact. Even though they physically worked harder to do daily tasks and produce goods as a family that we do not think twice about, they were probably happier and more fulfilled, and more mature at an earlier age than modern American families. Their values and character were stronger, simpler, & more wholesome than today’s Americans, too. We are better people just for having read all the Little House books. I recommend this series for children & adults to appreciate our modern conveniences, and to be inspired to live more simply, with more character, love, faith, & grit—just like Laura Ingalls Wilder’s family.
Although these books are entertaining . . . and informative! . . . enough to enjoy for a quiet evening read, give your children and grand children the opportunity to hear, and to see through the eyes of Laura Ingalls Wilder, what life was like in America during the Westward Expansion.

Her writing is as colorful and pleasantly descriptive as can be, largely because Laura became "the eyes" for her sister Mary when Mary lost her sight. Years of describing tiny wildflowers and rushing rivers and skies full of sunset shaped this daughter of the prairie into a novelist, par excellence. She knew her craft, her audience, her setting and her theme; this, for the reader, is a fluid, heart-warming, scintillating picture of life as the pioneers knew it.

In this volume, Pa has traded their horses, wagon and wagon cover for Mr. Hanson's dugout and land on the banks of Plum Creek. Once again Ma and the girls are making a home in the unsettled wilderness, and once again, Pa is planting and hewing and hunting and carving out a good life for his family. This episode, in particular, gives an idea of what it was like to participate in the life of a growing prairie township, attending school and starting a church, and learning to be good neighbors, often with little to give but kindness.

The hardships were sore, but the Ingalls family was accustomed to hardships. The story of the love they nurtured is something rich and flavorful to share with those YOU love, and if you are "pioneering" by yourself, brew a cup of coffee (Pa preferred a dish of tea!) and settle in for a true and wonderful story.
