This is the next generation story from the Midwestern Ingalls family of Little House on the Prairie fame. It follows the early years of Gene and Fern. The book offers a short history of their ancestors, the childhoods of both, how they met, and finally their marriage which resulted in bringing eight children into the world.
From the time they were wed until their older children began to leave home, they endured more tragedy and happiness than most couples do in a lifetime. The two managed through all of this all while raising eight kids in the ever-changing landscape of America of the 50s and 60s.

R. Lee Ingalls is part of the famous family Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote about in her series of beloved books. Lee describes himself as more of a story teller rather than an author. He often says Laura Ingalls was part of the fabric of America as it was populating and moving westward. Her life and experience didn’t differ much from most living at that time, but the remarkable act was she documented the journey. That is what Lee is doing with his new work. He is continuing the legacy Laura began by telling the life experiences of his parents.
