Can anyone tell me what a "fanning room" is? I know what a thrashing room is but not a fanning room. Thanks!

Which book are you refering to? In "Little House On the Prairie" there were two Osage Indians who wore skunk skins while Ma fixed them cornbread to eat before Pa came home from hunting. But there are other indian visits refered to in the series. All of the Wilder books are interesting to read, giving us a legacy of pioneer day adventures that even the young child of today would enjoy to have their parent read out loud to them. - Rita Crosley

Does anyone know when the Osage Indian came to the house when "Pa" was out hunting what kind of animal fur was the Indian wearing?

Summary of "On the Banks of Plum Creek", from an adult perspective:
The Ingalls family leaves Indian Territory with little to show for their time there. Charles doesn't want to admit failure, so they don't return to Wisconsin. With little money in his pocket, he settles for a sod house built into the bank of a creek.
This is the first opportunity for the Ingalls girls to live near a town, attend school and interact with other children since they left Wisconsin.
The girls meet their antagonist, Nellie Olsen, a town girl who is weathly and snobby.
This is one of my favorite of the Little House books. They are settled in a place that makes Ma happy, and the girls get to experience new adventures in what I perceive as a "safer" setting.
