I read a number of the Little House books recently, and when I finished I was fired up to learn more about Laura and her family. Even though I can't plan a trip in the near future to visit the places Laura called home, I loved reading about each spot in THE LITTLE HOUSE GUIDEBOOK.

Each chapter discusses the location of each "little house," including places that Laura lived in but didn't write about. Almanzo Wilder's homes are also included. We see photographs and read descriptions of what each place looks like now, how and when each spot was honored as a Laura Ingalls Wilder historical site, along with suggestions for interesting places to visit and stay.

The first chapter, which deals with "the little house in the big woods" of Pepin, Wisconsin, tells the tale of how Charles and Caroline Ingalls (Laura's parents) were among the earliest settlers of western Wisconsin. One interesting note: the house in the big woods was actually the Ingalls's home twice. The family sold the land once, moving to Kansas. However, the buyer quit making payments and the Ingalls returned. As with many of Laura's little houses, the original cabin is gone but visitors can tour a replica.

The next chapter discusses the setting of LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE, near Independence, Kansas. Here we learn more about the land issues between the Native Americans and the settlers, which eventually prompted the Ingalls to leave their prairie home.

If you grew up reading the "Little House" books and wonder if all of Laura's homes are still in existence and how they look, then look no further than this glossy guidebook. Although many of the Ingalls' early cabins have been reconstructed within the past 20 years (in Wisconsin & Kansas, for example) you can see from these photos what the Kansas prairies, the Dakota plains and the former Big Woods look like. Laura's home in Mansfield, MO is still standing and so is the last Ingalls home in De Smet, SD (which Pa built after Laura married and moved out) and Manly's childhood home in Malone, NY...

We used this book to plan our May trip to Kansas and Missouri. The directions were accurate and the information definitely added to our trip. We stayed at the Rosewood B&B (in the book, Kansas) and had a good time. This book is a must for any Laura Ingalls Wilder fan!

I have recently finished reading and re-reading Mr. Anderson's guidebook. It was very readable with good descriptions and pictures of LIW things to see and do. I have read several books by William Anderson so have a lot of faith in his writings. Even if I never get a chance to actually visit those places described, I can imagine them by reading his books. If I do get to travel, I feel empowered that I now know what to see and where to go. Dreaming on ...
