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 Even has quotes from some unpublished books written by Laura.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.
As for the modern landscape photographs, I'm sorry to say I didn't find them particularly evocative or moving... A person could find the equivalent on Google street view, or else in a prairie landscape photography book or something.
I did really like these parts of the book:
- in the front, there's a full-page picture of Pa's fiddle leaning up against a tree. Somehow very moving.
- the book follows the real chronology of Laura's life, and having the landscapes in order like that did add to the 'big picture' of her life in my head.
- it was nice seeing a picture of the real Plum creek
Overall, I think I'll flip through this book now and then. I'll definitely keep it. But it doesn't really have much new in it.
