Gregory White has been studying Laura Ingalls Wilder for over 35 years.

Excerpt:
I was able to take a charter bus with Evelyn and a group of about fifteen others (mostly adults) to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Home in Mansfield, Missouri. The experience of visiting Rocky Ridge Farm is probably why I still enjoy museums to this day. It wasn't the souvenirs in the gift shop that interested me - it was being able to walk across the same floors as Laura and Almanzo, to look out of the same windows of their house and see the views they saw, and to actually lay eyes on the desk where she wrote the Little House books. For someone wanting to become a writer when he grew up, it showed me a connection between a real person and a place, and the world she created to share with the entire world through writing. - Gregory White
