5 General introduction The dull rumble started while we were watching CNN coverage of the war in Afghanistan from our resort condominium in Acapulco, Mexico in early October of The sound quickly grew more intense as the floor began to shake under our feet.

6 Critical interpretation sample Laura Ingalls Wilder’s “Little House in the Big Woods” is a charming story of pioneer life in the 1800s. Laura describes one year of her family’s life in the woods of Wisconsin as seen through her eyes as a young child. This account includes rich descriptions of the things that impressed her at that time: her first rag doll, her pa’s story-telling skill, and a community celebration at sugar- making time. Playtime with her older sister, Mary, is full of creative imagination with acorn-cap tea cups and leaf plates. Even as a five-year-old, Laura makes significant contributions to family life as Ma and Pa’s little helper. Wilder pulls her readers into the story, allowing them to perceive her world through a child’s eyes.
