From the Back Cover:

Laura Ingalls Wilder created with her "Little House" books a world that won the hearts of millions of readers. Now, William Anderson takes us on an enchanting tour through the reality that inspired her stories - the life of Laura Ingalls Wilder and her pioneering family. Combining an enlightening narrative with historical family portraits and lavish photographs of such family treasures as Laura's writing desk, rocking chair, and china jewelry box, Pa's fiddle, and the family Bible, Laura Ingalls Wilder Country beautifully recaptures the extraordinary life of this beloved American family. From Pa, the natural storyteller, and Ma, the resourceful pioneer, to Laura's husband, Almanzo, the hero of her final five books, and their daughter, Rose, an award-winning writer, Laura's family provided the characters that peopled her books. With Leslie Kelly's beautiful color photographs, Anderson carefully details the interior and exterior of the Ingalls and Wilder homes - as well as the creek and the surrounding landscapes that played such a strong role in Laura's life. Richly detailed illustrations with an engaging historical narrative make Laura Ingalls Wilder Country the perfect companion to the "Little House" books.
