More About Laura Ingalls Wilder & Garth Williams

Laura Ingalls Wilder 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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Little House on the Prairie (Little House, No 2)?

Fabulous  Mar 19, 2007
Whether you have read the Little House books or have never heard of them, this book on tape is wonderful for everyone from small children to adults. The narrator who reads it does an amazing job of capturing the childhood wonderment and emotions Laura was trying to convey. It is also so interesting to hear the way families lived back in the 1800's. I could listen to this book on tape over and over again.
The perfect way to relive the innocence of simpler times  Jan 26, 2007
Laura may be Pa's little half-pint, but, living on the prairie, even being a child doesn't stop you from having to take part in daily chores to help the family. However, when Pa and Ma decide to pack up the wagon and head west, Laura, along with her older sister, Mary, finds herself excused from the daily regimen of quilting, and slaving over a hot stove all day, and instead finds herself smack dab in the middle of an adventure under the blue skies as the Ingalls family set off for Kansas territory. Kansas territory is full of wide-open land lush with wild animals, and perfect acreage made especially for settling on - and that's just what Pa intends to do. While the trip is bumpy, and often dangerous, as there are rapids to cross, and horse thieves to avoid, the Ingalls family find the perfect spot to establish their homestead, and Pa gets to work building a house fit for a king, and his four queens, while Ma spends her days cooking meals, and Laura and Mary divide their time between watching Baby Carrie, helping with chores, and playing with their beloved Jack. However, once the cabin is built, and the Ingalls family finally begin to feel settled, trouble comes lurking in the shape of the government and Indians. Laura finds herself frightened at how close the Indians travel to her new home, and is even more terrified when they demand things of Ma - such as food and tobacco. What was once a dream come true, is now turning into a nightmare - not just for the children, but for Ma and Pa, as well. Now, Pa, with the help of their new neighbors, and friends, Mr. Edwards and Mr. Scott, feels that it is up to them to learn more about what the government plans on doing to protect them from the Indians, while, at the same time, staying on the Indians good side to prevent a war from starting.

While the first two LITTLE HOUSE books - LITTLE HOUSE IN THE BIG WOODS and FARMER BOY - kept the prose peaceful and light, and stayed away from turmoil, LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE begins to introduce the dangers of frontier-life to readers, illustrating not only problems with the government and the Indians surrounding them, but also bringing talk of sickness, such as malaria, to light, giving readers a more accurate - if not slightly harsher view - of the world of Laura Ingalls. As in previous books, Laura Ingalls Wilder illustrates each and every aspect of prairie life in an easy-to-understand language that can be enjoyed by readers of all ages, male or female. Her descriptions of the hardships she encountered as her family crossed the Kansas territory are nerve-wracking; while her ability to recount everything from how, exactly, Pa built their home from scratch, and the excitement of having real glass windows in their home (something we often take for granted) brings a sense of joy to the reader. Those who read the two previous installments will love the addition of new characters to the tale - such as the kind-hearted Mr. Edwards. I also adored the character of Mr. Edwards on the LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE TV show, and was ecstatic to see him introduced to readers on paper here. His jovial personality, and bright outlook on life, along with his tenderness towards Laura, Mary, Baby Carrie, and even Ma and Pa are splendid, and really bring his kind spirit to life. The perfect way to relive the innocence of simpler times.

Good Old Fashioned Adventure  Jan 9, 2007
While I did not personally read this book, as I am a small, private, religious school library clerk, I chose this book because of its look, feel, and knowing that it was a great story as told by the original author of the Little House series. This book will uplift the spirit, protect the innocence, and provide real character building lessons for anyone who reads it. The Little House series does all that and more.

The girls in my school who did choose to read this liked it very much and have asked for more books from this series.
Refreshing ..  Jan 1, 2007
Since my boys have given me the Little House on the Prairie book set for Christmas (a gift that I have wanted ever since I was a little girl!) ~~ I have decided to start out the New Year with reading the entire series and travel down memory lane. These are the books that I have renewed time and time again when I was a young girl. Reading them again 30+ years later ~~ I still love them. I definitely appreciate them more now as I am a mother and an adult ~~ and a history lover. But the magic is still there.

This book is when Charles, Laura's pa, decided that The Big Woods was getting crowded with settlers traveling in from the East, so he upped and moved the entire family out west. They lived for a year on the prairie where the wild life was plentiful and everywhere. There were also Indians there too and while they didn't attack the Ingalls, they were restless. But for a year, they lived under a wide blue sky with ever-changing wind. Laura detailed as many details as she could ~~ their bout with malaria (or what they called, fever and agues), their special little gifts from the store in Independence, a town forty miles away, their daily routine and Pa's hard work in building a lovely home for all of them. They battled a wild fire that threatened to burn down their home. They also battled a chimney fire, the threat of an Indian uprising. There are also descriptions of nature so vividly painted that you can feel the wind blowing in their house, or look out the lovely glass windows, or see the moonlight beaming on their beds or hear the wolves howling all night long.

This is such a wonderful book ~~ historical and all. If "Little House in the Big Woods" garnered my interest in reading and in history ~~ this book captured it and kept it vivid all of my life.

What a great read! By:AS from North Boulevard School  Dec 18, 2006
The book I am writing about is "Little House on the Prairie" and it is written by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I think this book deserves double thumbs up and five stars!! I think it deserves this rating because it is sometimes informational and it is also very fun and enjoyable. It is not depressing that is what is very enjoyable about this story. This book is about a family moving to the prairie and starting a new, meeting new people, and encountering with Indians. The problem that occurs in the story is when the Indians go to war. The problem is solved at the end of the story. I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes history that can read long chapter books. This book is only one of the four books in its series
