Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867. She began writing, at sixty-five, a series of eight children's books about her life in the pioneer west. These books were later turned into a world-reknowned TV series, Little House on the Prairie. We all came to know and love Laura and her family through these books and the TV series (now in syndicated reruns). She died in 1957.Stephen Hines has published both fiction and poetry but is best known as a "literary prospector" who has brought back forgotten works by famous children's author Laura Ingalls Wilder, and works by Louisa May Alcott, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. His researches have taken him from the Herbert Hoover Library in West Branch, Iowa, to correspondence with British researchers dealing with the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in the United Kingdom. More than half a million copies of books he has collected and edited are in print, and he has had three bestsellers: Little House in the Ozarks, "I Remember Laura", and The Quiet Little Woman. He continues to write fiction and poetry and has been a newspaper humor columnist for seven years.
