On the Banks of the Bayou by Roger Lea McBride, is a book in the Rose Years Series. I have always loved the Little House Books and a couple of years ago, I found out that there are other series about other relatives of Laura Ingalls Wilder. I have read all of them except for a few of the Caroline years and a few of the Rose years. I have only not read those because I could not find them at the library. Well, the other day, I was in the library searching for a book for my son to read, well he was searching, and I noticed this book. I am now reading the final book in this series. I know I am reading middle school material, but hey it is soo good! Anyways this book starts where the last book left off when Rose. Laura Ingalls Wilder's daughter, decides she wants to go to high school only there is not one available where she lives and actually she is really bored with school in her area. So, Rose goes to Louisiana to live with her Aunt Eliza Jane to goe to a new high school there. This is a really good book, but the back of the book says this is the best in the series and I would have to say that I do not agree with that at all. I thin the first few books of this series are so much better! These are quick reading and really great books. If you like the Little House books you will enjoy these too.
