By the Shores of Silver Lake
The Ingalls are moving again! They have been through some difficult times for the farm and for the family, physically and financially, but now Pa has a wonderful offer out west, which he accepts. Pa heads out to the wilderness of the Dakota Territory, and the rest of the family follows a couple of months later. They become the first settlers in the new town of De Smet and Pa begins building in another new town on the shores of Silver Lake, but ultimately they are waiting until Pa finds the perfect homestead.
