FarmerBoy Goes West was a wonderful book. I enjoyed it because in the Laura Ingalls Wilder series you never learn much about Almanzo. This book was all about Almanzo. Now if you don’t know who Almanzo is, he is Laura Ingalls’s husband. This book shows you what he did before he was in De Smet south Dakota. Like going to spring valley, getting another pony named Queen. It also shows his sorrow over having to leave Starlight his colt.
