Laura Wilder

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 you've 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.

4 stars By Olivia, Nov 02 2016
Laura recieved her 1st teaching job 12 miles out of town and Almanzo Wilder takes her and picks her up for the weekend no matter how tough the weather is to Laura's relief, she does not enjoy teaching there for 2 months. Happy times for Laura would be going on sled rides with Almanzo and in the spring buggy rides and breaking in horses together! I reccommend you reading Little town on the Praire before reading this one as then you will get a better understanding of Laura and Almanzo I read all of Laura Ingalls Wilder books in order and I found it helpful this book would have to be one of my favourite ones to read out of all the books.
