"Many girls in elementary and middle school fall in love with the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. What they don't always realize is that Wilder's books are autobiographical. This narrative biography describes more of the details of the young Laura's real life as a young pioneer homesteading with her family on many adventurous journeys. This biography, complete with charming illustrations, points out the differences between the fictional series as well as the many similarities. It's a fascinating story of a much-celebrated writer"-- Provided by publisher.

An accessible middle grade biography that's reminiscent of the Garth Stein illustrated editions we all know and adore. Had some new info in there that I hadn't heard before.

A good read aloud for Grades 4 and up for Pioneer studies.
