Although generations of readers of the Little House books are familiar with Laura Ingalls Wilder’s early life up through her first years of marriage to Almanzo Wilder, few know about her adult years. Going beyond previous studies, Becoming Laura Ingalls Wilder focuses upon Wilder’s years in Missouri from 1894 to 1957. Utilizing her unpublished autobiography, letters, newspaper stories, and other documentary evidence, John E. Miller fills the gaps in Wilder’s autobiographical novels and describes her sixty-three years of living in Mansfield, Missouri. As a result, the process of personal development that culminated in Wilder’s writing of the novels that secured her reputation as one of America’s most popular children’s authors becomes evident.

The name Laura Ingalls Wilder is nearly synonymous with her famous Little House book series. Nearly 60 years have passed since Laura finished her final Little House book, but time has not diminished the love for her and her stories. Before writing her Little House series, Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote articles and weekly columns for a newspaper in Mansfield, Mo. In Laura Ingalls Wilder's Prairie Wisdom, artist Yvonne Pope has collected quotes from these early writings. The quotes convey Laura's homespun wisdom and witty personality that made her beloved by all who have read her work. These heartwarming quotes are paired with Yvonne's own beautifully colorful pen and ink drawings that compliment Laura's whimsical and spirited personality. Laura Ingalls Wilder's Prairie Wisdom is a must for anyone who grew up reading the Little House series but is also for anyone searching for inspiration from a woman who knew a few things about the importance of family, friends, and values. Laura's spirit is revealed through her own words: * We who live in quiet places have the opportunity to become acquainted with ourselves, to think our own thoughts. * No one ever achieved anything from the smallest object to the greatest unless the dream was dreamed first.
