About the Author
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.
Dan Andreasen has illustrated many well-loved books for children, including River Boy: The Story of Mark Twain and Pioneer Girl: The Story of Laura Ingalls Wilder, both by William Anderson, as well as many titles in the Little House series. He lives with his family in Medina, Ohio.

good ideas. Great book at this price.
Most of the book though is predictably devoted to Laura's writings and musings, and divided into the following sections:
"Writing from the Prairie"
"The House on Rocky Ridge Farm"
"The Missouri Ruralist years"
"Mrs Wilder's Nature Songs"
"Laura and her Hometown"
"Laura and the Younger Generation"
"The Little House Author"
"Of Time, Life, and Eternity"
The writings are accompanied in some instances by archival photographs such as portraits of Laura and Almanzo, their homestead, a charming photo of Laura in her housewifely garb, etc. These photos certainly add to the charm of the book.
I'd recommend this book to all those who are fans of Laura Ingalls Wilder and her Little House Books. I've been a long-time fan, ever since I was a young child sitting in my family room thousands of miles away in Malaysia [where I was raised] and watching the television show with my family. I loved the show so much that I went on to devour the books [buying them used on what little allowance I saved], and as I grew older, I kept up with books to do with LIW. It has been an inspiring and heartwarming journey!
