Some brief overview of this book

Meet Laura Ingalls...the little girl who would grow up to write the Little House books. Wolves and panthers and bears roamed the deep Wisconsin woods in the 1870s. In those same woods, Laura Ingalls lived with her Pa and Ma, and her sisters Mary and baby Carrie, in a snug little house built of logs. Pa hunted and trapped. Ma made her own cheese and maple syrup. All night long, the wind howled lonesomely, but Pa played his fiddle and sang, keeping the family safe and cozy.

A year in the life of two young girls growing up on the Wisconsin frontier, as they help their mother with the daily chores, enjoy their fathers stories and singing, and share special occasions when they get together with relatives or neighbors.

A few words about book's author

Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867 in the log cabin described in Little House in the Big Woods. She and her family traveled by covered wagon across the Midwest. Later, Laura and her husband, Almanzo Wilder, made their own covered-wagon trip with their daughter, Rose, to Mansfield, Missouri. There, believing in the importance of knowing where you began in order to appreciate how far youve come, Laura wrote about her childhood growing up on the American frontier. For millions of readers Laura lives on forever as the little pioneer girl in the beloved Little House books.

Garth Williams began his work on the pictures for the Little House books by meeting Laura Ingalls Wilder at her home in Missouri, and then he traveled to the sites of all the little houses. His charming art caused Laura to remark that she and her family live again in these illustrations.

Biography

I wanted the children now to understand more about the beginnings of things, to know what is behind the things they see — what it is that made America as they know it, Laura Ingalls Wilder once said. Wilder was born in 1867, more than 60 years before she began writing her autobiographical fiction, and had witnessed the transformation of the American frontier from a barely populated patchwork of homestead lots to a bustling society of towns, trains and telephones. Early pictures of Laura Ingalls show a young woman in a buttoned, stiff-collared dress, but theres nothing prim or quaint about the childhood she memorialized in her Little House books. Along with the expected privations of prairie life, the Ingalls family faced droughts, fires, blizzards, bears and grasshopper plagues. Although she didnt graduate from high school, Wilder had enough schooling to get a teaching license, and took her first teaching job at the age of 15. Later, Wilder and her husband settled on a farm in the Missouri Ozarks, where Wilder began writing about farm life for newspapers and magazines. She didnt try her hand at books until 1930, when she started chronicling her childhood at the urging of her daughter Rose. Her first effort at an autobiography, Pioneer Girl, failed to find a publisher, but it spurred a second effort, a set of eight historical novels, as Wilder called them, based on her own life. Little House in the Big Woods (1932) was an instant hit. It was followed by a new volume every two years or so, and the series success snowballed until thousands of fans were waiting eagerly for each new installment. Ms. Wilder has caught the very essence of pioneer life, the satisfaction of hard work, the thrill of accomplishment, safety and comfort made possible through resourcefulness and exertion, said the New York Times review of Little House on the Prairie (1935). In 1954, the American Library Association established the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award to honor the lifetime achievement of a childrens author or illustrator; Wilder herself was the first recipient. After Wilders death in 1957, historical societies sprang up to preserve what they could of her childhood homes, and her manuscripts and journals provided the material for several more books. A TV series based on the books, Little House on the Prairie, ran from 1974 to 1984 and renewed interest in Wilders work and life. More recently, fictionalized biographies of her daughter, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother have appeared. Wilders books have now been translated into over 40 languages, and still provide an engrossing history lesson for young readers, as well as insight into the frontier values that Wilder once catalogued as courage, self-reliance, independence, integrity and helpfulness — values, in her words, worth as much today as they ever were to help us over the rough places.

Good To Know

Wilders daughter, the writer Rose Wilder Lane, helped revise her mothers books; the collaboration was so extensive that one biographer proposed Rose was the real author of the Little House books. Most agree that Rose was, if not author or co-author, instrumental in suggesting the project to her mother and shaping it for publication. After her books were published, fan mail for Wilder poured in; among more than a thousand cards and gifts she received for her birthday in 1951 was a cablegram of congratulations from General Douglas MacArthur. Wilder, who had grown up making long journeys by covered wagon, took her first airplane ride at the age of 87, on a visit to Rose in Danbury, Connecticut.
