Overview

Laura Ingalls Wilder told happy stories about the windy, frosty prairie, but she wrote of those hard times only after spending forty happy years in the Ozarks.

All the moves with Pa and Ma from Wisconsin to northern Missouri to Kansas to Minnesota to Iowa to Dakota –

All the moves with Almanzo from one homestead to another, to Minnesota, to Florida, back to Dakota –

All this moving ended when Laura found her happy home in the Ozarks.

Laura Ingalls’ Friends Remember Her is a book that contains memories from Laura & Almanzo’s close friends, Ozarkers who knew them around the town of Mansfield, Missouri.

They saw Laura over at Pennington’s Grocery: one of the most famous authors in America, perched cozily on a wooden box, waiting for the clerk to get her groceries.

Almanzo was often at the Farmer’s Exchange, exchanging stories with the farmers.

We chat with these folks, down home and close up, about their good friends Laura & Almanzo.

Plus this book contains discussions of:

- How Laura’s Ozark life made her happy books possible;
- What made Laura’s books so happy;
- Whether her daughter Rose wrote Laura’s books;
- and Laura’s last, lonely little house.
