Overview

In her classic books, Laura Ingalls Wilder lovingly described the many little houses she and her family lived in as they traveled across the American frontier. Today, these houses have been preserved as sites and museums that thousands of fans visit every year. The Little House Guidebook contains detailed information on these sites, as well as guidance on where to eat and stay, and other places to explore in the surrounding areas. Special features included colored tabs on each chapter for easy reference, a room-by-room tour of Laura's Rocky Ridge Farmhouse, and a walking tour and street map of De Smet, Laura's little town on the prairie, as well as guidance on how to get to the sites, where to eat and stay, and other places to explore in the surrounding areas.

Lavishly illustrated throughout with beautiful full-color photographs of Laura's houses and memorabilia, and gently colorized versions of Garth Williams' original art from the Little House books, this guidebook is the perfect companion for anyone who wants to visit Laura's little houses or just read about them.

This newly updated edition arrives just in time for the 70th anniversary of Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House" series of charming stories about growing up on the American frontier. Don't let the word "Guidebook" fool you�it's much more than that. Included are eight homes that Laura Ingalls Wilder lived in and descriptions of some of her life in each one. The color photographs of the homes, monuments, and so forth as they look today are enhanced by Garth Williams' colorized artwork from the original books. Each chapter is devoted to a separate house, giving a brief portrayal of Laura's fascinating life at each. At the end of the chapters are suggestions�What to See and Do in and around the homes, as well as names of places to eat and stay once you've found them. If you are familiar with the "Little House" series of books or the television program, the names will be recognizable and this will be informative reading whatever your age. 2002 (orig. 1996), HarperTrophy,
