My favorite picture is the wedding photo of Caroline and Charles Ingalls. Since they are always seen from Laura's perspective, it's easy to forget that they were once a young couple just starting out on their married life together, with no idea of what the future would bring. It was just a thought that occurred to me when I saw the picture. You just know they never expected that millions of people in the 20th century would fondly know of them as the Ma and Pa Ingalls.
I loved seeing the pictures of Laura and her family. I am sure my sisters are going to love this book too.
I also liked the extra tidbits of information. Even has quotes from some unpublished books written by Laura.
My review is not the best just wanted to give the book another 5 stars.
Now my son is reading them to my granddaughter. I gave her the complete set for Christmas from Amazon--a good buy. My granddaughter just did a book report and diorama for her class and I was thrilled she loves the books too.
I took this book, 'Laura Ingalls Wilder Country', off the shelf and just re-read it. It is still as interesting and full of high-quality photographs as the first time I read it. How delighted I was to see that it is still being published. I am ordering it now for my granddaughter. I'm sure my son and daughter-in-law will enjoy it too. It really is a must-have for Laura Ingalls Wilder fans.
I will also give my granddaughter a leaf I picked from one of the trees Pa planted for his wife and daughters. I dried it and saved it in the pages of this book.
As for the reviewer's complaint about pictures of "grass", I can only say that nothing except perhaps the vastness and power of the mid-ocean can prepare you for the Great Plains.
I also loved all the illustrations,actual pictures of places Laura lived, descriptions from the books and other writings that Laura did while growing up on the prairie. The amazing thing is the pictures of the real Ingalles including Laura and her sisters Mary and Carrie together taken while they first moved to the Dakota area. Also the pictures of Laura and Almanzo are truly terrific. This is such a wonderful treasured keep-sake for any and all fans of the "Little House" books, t.v. series, Disney version and of course fans of Laura Ingalls Wilder herself.
