Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of the eight "Little House" books, which tell her family’s story of living on the land in 1870-1889, is perhaps the most famous pioneer of the Upper Midwest. This version of the hymn "The Home of the Soul," as sung by her mother Caroline, is found in "The Laura Ingalls Wilder Songbook" and referred to in the most harrowing book of Ingalls’ series, "The Long Winter." Snowed in in Dakota Territory during one of the harshest winters on record, near starvation, the family listens to the song with hope and dread: “The hymn blended with the wailing of the winds outside as Ma sat in her rocking chair and softly sang about the beautiful land where no storms ever beat.”
