More About Laura Ingalls Wilder & Renee Graef
Laura Ingalls Wilder was born on February 7, 1867, near Pepin, Wisconsin. From 1882–1885 she was a teacher in South Dakota. She married Almanzo Wilder in 1885. 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.
Laura Ingalls Wilder has said that she and her sisters were busy and happy as children but loved Pa's stories the best. In 1932, when Laura was 60 years old, she wrote her first book, Little House In The Big Woods, so those stories would not be lost. She thought about how she had seen the settling of the frontier -- the woods, Indian Territory of the Great Plains, the frontier towns, the coming of the railroad, and homesteading on the prairie. She thought of writing the story of her childhood in eight volumes that would cover each aspect of the American frontier. These became the Little House series. Wilder finished the last book in 1943. On February 10, 1957, she died at age 90, on her farm in Mansfield, Missouri.
For millions of readers Laura lives on forever as the little pioneer girl in the beloved Little House books.
Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 and died in 1957.

The true way of the samurai, a sharp contrast to the popular depictions Dec 6, 2007
This book should be mandatory reading for all elementary school boys. The western movies depicting martial arts fighting always seem to have the warriors making all kinds of wild moves and shouting some form of guttural Asian gibberish. Samurai did not behave in that manner at all. The true Samurai warrior was a person of great internal strength and control. Fighting was done in a silent and deadly manner, with few sounds other than those that were a consequence of the battle. Furthermore, a Samurai engaged in deadly combat only when it was absolutely necessary. This book contains twelve short stories based on actual Japanese folk tales with the Samurai demonstrating the true way of the honored warrior. Like folk tales from every point of the world, there is generally a moral to the story, one that people should pay attention to. While the way of the samurai was a hard one, their code of self-discipline contains many lessons for the modern child.
the rating of the gratest book in the world Apr 4, 2005
the sword of the samurai is agrste book becouse if you like fighting or advencher this will be the book you should read this book the rating i give the book is a 7 becous i like advencher and stuff but the book could be beter if they would told us if the samurai got killed or not becouse he got staved in the last fight and they also could have told us if the boy and his dad ever stoped fighting and got over ther deferences.
Sword of the Samurai Feb 5, 2001
Sword of the Samurai is a great book. It is a series of several stories about samurais. Even though this book is fantasy it brings in life lessons that you can relate to in real life. Like when 3 samurai trick someone into a ride in their oxcart because they don't want to walk to a festival their journey ends up to be a misrable one. That is why you should not trick people into doing something for you because the samurai almost lost face. You'll have to read this book to find out why. This book brings out many journeys with weak and brave samurais but I think you will love every one. Each and every one has a different moral to it and it makes you think about real life situations. If you like action adventure and fictional books I think you should read Sword of the Samurai by Eric A. Kimmel.
Far better than Pokemon and Digimon Jul 12, 2000
This collection of Samurai stories is written for a child to read themselves. The stories are short and entertaining - a head severed and reattached, a tea master frightening a swordsman, an unluckly samurai accidently finding the secret to destroy a dragon, a no-sword samurai master outwitting a braggart samurai, a female samurai ... all in all good fun for the right child.
The author has provided a very short introduction to each story to place the story culturally - this keeps the "Japanese" aspect from provided a cultural barrier to the reader's understanding. The author has used a few Japanese words and provide a glossary of them ... just enough to remind the reader these are samurai not knights.
