Found this book while perusing the shelves at our local library and thought it might make an interesting read. I can't decide if I was right or not. It was kind of interesting, but kind of boring too. It is classed as a children's book and is a good example of diary entries. I could see using it to introduce children to the idea of keeping diaries.
I thought it was going to be interesting because I had been a fan Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House series but I should have known that it wasn't going to be the same. There's quite a difference in novel writing and diary writing. It was kind of interesting to read about what life was like for them in the 1894 during their travels but there really wasn't anything exciting about it. Then again, it is a diary, not a novel.
So, I did kind of enjoy On the Way Home: The Diary of a Trip from South Dakota to Mansfield, Missouri, in 1894 by Laura Ingalls Wilder, but it's not a book I would likely recommend to anyone looking for an interesting book to read.
