Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Gisela Jernigan
Fans of the Little House books, and those interested in US and family history, should appreciate this well-written, carefully researched biography of the popular children's author, Laura Ingalls Wilder. Twelve chapters present a good picture of Laura's life, from background information on her parents and her birth, through her childhood with its many moves, her marriage and close relationships with her husband and daughter Rose, and then to her development as a writer fairly late in life and her active, productive old age. The book also includes information on Rose Wilder Lane and her adopted grandson Roger MacBride, and how they contributed to and extended the Little House books to another generation. Many black and white photos and drawings some from the Little House books, an index, bibliography, and a listing with addresses for eight of the Little Houses are also included.
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8This readable biography clarifies the chronology of events that were described in the "Little House" books and gives additional information about the family and Wilder's adult life that was not covered in the series. Wadsworth quotes from correspondences between mother and daughter to support the view that Wilder wrote drafts and sought and accepted help from her daughter, Rose, an accomplished writer, in forming the final manuscripts. The book is illustrated with reprints of Garth Williams's illustrations for the original books, family photographs, and historical photographs depicting the times and places the family lived. Source notes are appended. The book will primarily appeal to readers who have enjoyed the "Little House" books. It is shorter but similar in approach to Laura Ingalls Wilder (HarperCollins, 1992) written by long-time Ingalls Wilder researcher, William Anderson. Carolyn Strom Collins and Christina Wyss Eriksson's The World of Little House (HarperCollins, 1996) is an attractive alternative for readers who are just beginning the series.Adele Greenlee, Bethel College, St. Paul, MN
