Many girls in elementary and middle school fall in love with the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. What they don't always realize is that Wilder's books are autobiographical. This biography describes more of  the details of Laura's real life as a young pioneer  homesteading with her family on many adventurous  journeys. Complete with charming illustrations, the narrative points out the differences between the fictional series and Wilder's real life, as well as the many similarities. It's a fascinating story of a much­ celebrated writer.
