A biography of Laura Ingalls Wilder, who actually lived in the little houses about which she wrote
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
A bare-bones biography, bordering on the simplistic in text and style, but one that may encourage readers to seek out the "Little House" books for embellishment. Gwenda Blair's Laura Ingalls Wilder (Putnam, 1981) introduces older children to Wilder's life story. Without fictionalizing, Greene takes readers through all the travels of Wilder's childhood. Her family's final farm home in Missouri is described and introduced in photographs. The illustrations vary from understandably murky family photos to contemporary color photographs of the Ingalls' pioneer home sites and original paintings. Unfortunately, the paintings seem akin to jigsaw puzzle art, notwithstanding their color and verve. A serviceable but undistinguished effort. --Jacqueline Elsner, Athens Regional Library, GA
