I liked The Wilder Life and this short e-book has more stories and reflections in a similar vein. I read it pretty much in one sitting, but I'll be revisiting my favorites (like the two "pig parts" vignettes).

If you read and enjoyed Wendy McClure' s wonderful tale of her journey in search of all things Laura Ingalls Wilder, you should also like this short series of essays that are really just a small selection of additional chapters that should have been included in "The Wilder Life". McClure pokes fun at her own fascination with the author of the beloved Little House books, and her stories bring to mind all of the delightful touches that I remember and loved so much. It's also great to learn so much of the back story of the life of LIW and family. At 2.99 for the Kindle edition, I completely enjoyed this short but very sweet bunch of essays about all things Little House.

I expected more from Wendy McClure. She usually makes me laugh out loud. I do highly recommend her full length books though.

These brief essays by McClure don't have the development and sustained appeal that The Wilder Life does, but they are entertaining.

The book was very enjoyable for anyone who loved the Laura books - it was like having a chat with a mutual friend. Her idea to discuss various points of Laura's lifestyle was a great idea, but I thought she could have gone further with it. Especially as she only started to discuss each point, then she was done. It's a shame she didn't take it all a bit further... more discussion points, more discussion.

I read this book because the title suggested it would be amusing...I was not disappointed. The author uses humor to tell enough of the lessons that she got reading those novels, that it makes me want to read them. I have never read the Wilder novels, nor did I watch the popular television show based on them. I enjoyed the reminder that life wasn't all fun and games in those "olden" times, times were tough, and it makes you appreciate the things we have to make our life easier today. I particulary enjoyed the chapter on the clothing....whalebone stays in your corset....yes, that would make your chores easier, eh? But those who lived it, didn't complain, it's just how things were.... I suggest this for a light quick read.
