The Long Winter Lit Study

By completing this registration for a Laura Ingalls Wilder Lit Study at Hills of Milk and Honey, you are signing up your child to participate in the The Long Winter virtual lit study and on farm book discussion and workshop day.

The fledgling town of De Smet in the Dakota Territory is hit hard by the brutal winter of 1880-1881. Laura, Pa, Ma, Mary, Carrie, and little Grace face the winter as best they can, but soon, blizzards have covered the town in snow that piles up to the rooftops, cutting the town off from supplies and trade. Food stores begin to run dangerously low. To save the town from starvation, young Almanzo Wilder and a friend brave the conditions, set off across the prairie in search of wheat, and return victorious. The town is saved, and the townspeople share in an unusual, but joyful, Christmas celebration.

[Workshop theme: Food preservation techniques including water bath canning and dehydrating.]
