Synopsis

Laura Ingalls Wilder by Amy Sickels

When Laura Ingalls Wilder decided to write about her childhood on the American frontier, she had no idea that her books would become staples of children's literature. Wilder published her first book, Little House in the Big Woods , at age 65. She went on to write seven more Little House books, finishing the last one when she was 76 years old. Born in 1867, Wilder realized that with the Little House books, she could capture a rich part of American history for posterity while sharing her personal memories with others. Laura Ingalls Wilder is a full-color biography that shows how these books continue to be treasured classics around the world. Fans of Laura Ingalls Wilder will gain tremendous insight into the life and works of one of the most widely read authors of children's literature.
