Great pics May 24, 2010

Laura Ingalls Wilder revisited Apr 25, 2010
Great book for traveling to a Laura Ingalls Wilder site either in person or imaginery.I fortunately, have done both.
A spectacular written and visual look at Laura Ingalls Wilder's life, and the places she lived. Feb 11, 2010
This is such a fantasic book filled with pictures,descriptions and more of the places Laura Ingalls Wilder grew up during the trying pioneer times. You get to see places that she hasn't included in her series of "Little House" books, like the hotel that she helped with cooking meals at; when she was just ten years old!
I also loved all the illustrations,actual pictures of places Laura lived, descriptions from the books and other writings that Laura did while growing up on the prairie. The amazing thing is the pictures of the real Ingalles including Laura and her sisters Mary and Carrie together taken while they first moved to the Dakota area. Also the pictures of Laura and Almanzo are truly terrific. This is such a wonderful treasured keep-sake for any and all fans of the "Little House" books, t.v. series, Disney version and of course fans of Laura Ingalls Wilder herself.
Great addition to the Little House collection of books Jan 30, 2010
I am a big fan of Laura Ingalls Wilder. I've read and reread the book series and also own the DVD tv series. The book is wonderful. The pictures are big and many, and it gives a lot of information. Would recommend this to any Laura Ingalls wilder fan.
Great pictures, a must-have for LHOTP fans Jun 18, 2008
This gorgeous book has pictures of all the places mentioned in the Little House books. William Anderson's narration is interesting, but the pictures carry this book. Good for LHOTP collections!
