    Wonderful

    This is the book that made me want to read everything I could about Laura Ingalls Wilder! The book is filled with beautiful photographs of the family and the land. If I had a choice between going to Paris or visiting all the places in the book where Laura lived and visited, I would choose the latter. And I recommend anything by William Anderson. He really captures the spirit of being a pioneer!
