A Little House Reader: A Collection of Writings by Laura Ingalls Wilder

A Little House Reader: A Collection of Writings by Laura Ingalls Wilder Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Laura Ingalls Wilderwas a writer long before she ever recorded the adventures of her pioneer childhood in the beloved Little House books. As a young girl she wrote poetry, and after marrying Almanzo and moving to the Ozark Mountains, she became a journalist, publishing articles on farming and the life of a farmwife. This moving collection pieces together a unique medley of Laura's writings from the time before her Little House books. These writings, culled mostly from fragile and yellowed pieces of paper, offer a window into Laura's day-to-day life and experiences, giving us a richer understanding of the woman and writer famed for her Little House books.

About the Author

Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in the Wisconsin woods in 1867. She wrote the Little House books based on her own experiences growing up on the Western frontier. Just like the characters in her stories, Laura and her family traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest as they moved from place to place. She and her husband, Almanzo, finally settled down in Mansfield, Missouri, where she lived until she was ninety years old.
