For everyone who loves the Little House on the Prairie books, here is a charming collection of never-before-published writings that inspired the cherished series.
Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of the classic "Little House" books that have delighted millions of readers, was first encouraged to write about her early day on the frontier by her daughter, Rose. This delightful collection, a must-have for all Little House fans, is comprised of Laura's early autobiographical pieces along with stories and essays by Rose, an award-winning writer who herself wrote about growing up on the family farm. From log cabins and covered wagons to the hardworking farm life that Laura and Rose fondly recall, A Little House Sampler is a vivid and personal testament to nearly 100 years of American life and history as seen by two remarkable women.
Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867–1957) was born in a log cabin in the Wisconsin woods. With her family, she pioneered throughout America’s heartland during the 1870s and 1880s, finally settling in Dakota Territory. She married Almanzo Wilder in 1885; their only daughter, Rose, was born the following year. The Wilders moved to Rocky Ridge Farm at Mansfield, Missouri, in 1894, where they established a permanent home. After years of farming, Laura wrote the first of her beloved Little House books in 1932. The nine Little House books are international classics. Her writings live on into the twenty-first century as America’s quintessential pioneer story.
"As the original counts on which the Little House books were based, these articles will be appreciated by fans as well as those interested in the settlement of the West." — Library Journal
"Laura's writings promote the virtues and happiness to be found in hard work and simple things." — Publishers Weekly
