Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote the famous Little House® books about her early life on the prairie. But she wrote those wonderful, warm works in a farm house in the Ozark hills of southern Missouri. This book contains candid talk about Laura Ingalls and Almanzo Wilder from their Ozark neighbors. Sit down with their good friends and learn about Laura and Almanzo, down home and close up. Read discussions of their life in the Ozarks; why Laura’s books make us happy; and whether or not their daughter Rose wrote Laura’s books, as has been alleged. The book includes extensive selections from Laura’s most beautiful thoughts and writings, taken from her magazine articles of nearly a century ago, full of the same warmth and beauty that is in her Little House® stories. Laura’s Little House® books tell of cold northern winters, but she wrote them with a warm Ozark heart. This book is a record of Ozarkers recalling two of their own, and Little House® fans of all ages should relish these personal insights.
