It seemed I was constantly comparingAlmanzos childhood experiences with those of Lauras. During their youth,the Wilder and Ingalls households each had six members, but the Wildersfarm was tremendous. It required constant vigilence and teamwork to keepthings running smoothly. Readers learn about the familys daily care fortheir farm animals, and also about the work that changes with the seasons.There is the ice-house to fill, and maple sugar production, sheep-shearing,wool-dyeing, spring cleaning, seed-sowing, gardening, the grain andproduce harvests, preserving, butchering, candle-making, threshing, wood-hauling. But there is also time for berrying, enjoying Christmas andIndependence Day, and winning prizes at the county fair. Almanzos ninthyear is also the beginning of his coming-of-age. He learns to appreciatethe work that goes into earning just fifty cents. He deals with bullies andbuilding good study habits during his first months at school. He learns thata little innocuous goofing off is fine while his parents are away for a week,
but that fighting with his big sister can cause something bad to happen. Hewants nothing better than to have a colt of his own, but learns to treat theyoung horses carefully until his father should decide to let him have one.He discovers that some adults can be petty or unethical, and that sometown businessmen think its in his best interest to start an apprenticeship.Because he has grown up so much in one year, an offer and a decisionare Almanzos to consider in the final chapter.
