The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder tells the story of her family surviving a horrific 8-month-long ordeal of blizzards, deprivation, and isolation in the winter of 1880-1881 in the sparsely inhabited Dakota Territory. Their story is one of perseverance and hope. These are feelings we can all relate to, perhaps now more than ever: dealing with uncertainty, social isolation, and anxiety about the future. And the lessons are just as true as ever: have faith, have hope, and to ask for help when you need it.

Hear from Laura Ingalls Wilder (presented by Laura Keyes) as she reflects on almost 40 years after those events, and shares what lessons she learned from that Hard Winter.
