From School Library Journal
YA Editor Anderson has collected a wide variety of writingfiction, essays, articles, columns, poems, drafts, unpublished manuscripts, notes, and musingsof Laura Ingalls Wilder and her journalist-novelist daughter, Rose Wilder Lane. Their voices inform even the best-read Wilder fans about the difficulties and adventures that balanced the joys and simple pleasures in the Ingalls and Wilder households. The women's work also paints an unsentimental portrait of frontier life in the late 19th Century. The varied purposes, audiences, styles, and formats of the selections invite study, comparison, and analysis and could serve as writing models. Anderson introduces each piece with biographical data and draws relationships to the ``Little House'' books. Alice Conlon, University of Houston
