Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 in the log cabin described in Little House in the Big Woods. She and her family traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest. Later, Laura and her husband, Almanzo Wilder, made their own covered-wagon trip with their daughter, Rose, to Mansfield, Missouri. There, believing in the importance of knowing where you began in order to appreciate how far you've come, Laura wrote about her childhood growing up on the American frontier. For millions of readers Laura lives on forever as the little pioneer girl in the beloved Little House books.
Garth Williams's classic illustrations for the Little House books caused Laura to remark that she "and her folks live again in these pictures." Garth Williams also illustrated Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, and almost one hundred other books.

Rereading the classics to my five year old. She asks lots of questions. I am surprised how little I remember of it from reading it in my preteen years. Read morePublished 18 days ago by Tawa
Great set. All nine books together in a neat little box. The quality of the paper and box is not super high, but at this price I wouldn't expect hardcovers. Read morePublished 20 days ago by C. Frederick
