More About Laura Ingalls Wilder & Jody Wheeler
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.

Great way to introduce your kids to the Little House series! Mar 15, 2006
These books are a great way to get your younger child interested in the Little House books. The pictures are beautiful. My 3 year old became interested in them when she was 2 and carries them all over the house. We read them so much she has them memorized!
Wonderful Book for Boys Jan 15, 2006
This is a strong, family/work ethic "history" book for boys, which is rare. This is on my list for gifts right along side, "Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel".
