About the Author

Dan L. White and his wife Margie settled on a farmstead in the Ozarks some years ago, just north of the Gasconade River, about 12 miles up the road from Laura's Rocky Ridge Farm. There they homeschooled their five children and lived a quiet Ozarks country life. In 2004 they began Homeschool Helpers, doing whatever they can to encourage Christian homeschool families, holding hundreds of activities and publishing a free weekly newsletter. Dan has authored other books about Laura Ingalls including: Devotionals with Laura: Laura Ingalls' Favorite Bible Selections Laura's Friends Remember Her: Memories from Laura's Ozarks Home Laura Ingalls Wilder's Most Inspiring Writings

More About the Author

About a quarter century ago, Dan and Margie settled in the Missouri Ozarks, on forty acres, about ten miles up the road from the farm of Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of the famous Little House books. There they have lived a peaceful, laid-back, Jubilee like lifestyle, sharing time with God, children and animals. After homeschooling their five children, they began Homeschool Helpers, to try to help other Christian homeschool families by providing activities and encouragement.

Not worth the money--just buy the real thing.

Read the book, enjoy everything written about Laura Ingalls, but a bit elementary.....enjoy reading Laura's own books a lot more, Probably still worth the read.....

Another thing that irritated me: About half of this book is Mr. White citing his own previously written works on the Wilders.

I wanted to love this book. I loved the idea of a book about Manly and Laura's love story. I truly believe they did have one of the greatest love stories of all times. It wasn't all romance and wining and dining but it was a love that grew from a flirtatious interest into something real and solid that lastest beyone their lifetimes. This book was truly disappointing in the fact that there is a miniscule amount of new information here, perhaps none. The author also recites passages from Laura's books in great details...he may re-word things, but if I wrote like this on a school paper the teacher would give me an 'F' for plagurizing. Why would anyone want to read Mr White's play by plays when we could read the beautiful originals in Laura's books? Another thing that irritated me: About half of this book is Mr. White citing his own previously written works on the Wilders. It was beyond annoying and still the information has been read a million other places. There are no photographs available in the book and even if they were previously published pictures it would have added to the tale. The end of the book where the death of Almanzo is described by one of Laura's neighbors is touching and that is the only reason for moving this up to 2 stars from the 1 I had originally contemplated. I think for this book to be worth the money you should never have read a biography about Laura Ingalls Wilder before. Even at that, there are many better ones available.

If someone had never read anything about or by Laura Ingalls Wilder, this might be interesting. For someone who has read everything by her and about her that I could find and has also been to Mansfield Missouri and DeSmet SD, this was mostly a repeat of everything. It is not worth the amount I paid for it. The first 2 chapters are from her books Farmer boy and Those happy golden years. The next 5 chapters covers the 64 years of marriage together. With lots of reputation and notes to other things written about her.

This book is written without dialogue, which would be acceptable if it were WELL written. It is basically a reiteration of The Little House series. I've read these books over and over and I don't want someone explaining to me that Laura wrote this and that in Farmer Boy, etc. It's more like cliff notes than a story. NOT worth the $8.00.

This is just a rehash of everything that's been written in the novel, no new revelations, not even dialogue. A real shame. Basically condenses their romance in what is essentially a Wikipedia article. Not worth the money--just buy the real thing. This is leeching off the literary genius of Laura.

I am a diehard Laura ingalls Wilder fan - from before the television show. Have read all her books and have been to DeSmet and Mansfield. This book is a total waste of time and money. Badly written, the same things are repeated over and over. There is zero new material. It is all just rehashes of info from other books. I felt it was the author's attempt to continue to make more money off of Laura. I returned it.

Wasn't original. Excerpts taken from already known facts. Repetitive tidbits. Rambling. I really wish that I hadn't purchased it. Will not buy anymore by that author

You'll never look at your marriage in the same way after reading this book. The lessons are profound, love without limit, for a lifetime. The book is not written with dialogue like a fictionalized novel, but as a biography from which we can learn life lessons. This is a real story and it is really inspiring. It's a sweet, sweet story and I liked it.

This reads like a college essay. I was expecting something a little more mature in the writing method. I ended up not finishing the book as it didn't hold my interest. Much of this story is already written in the Ingall's-Wilder series.
