About the Author:

William Anderson has written many books of history, biography, and travel. As a teacher, he has often taught the books of Mark Twain, and he visited Twain's homesites while researching this book. He is also the author of the picture-book biography Pioneer Girl: The Story of Laura Ingalls Wilder and Laura Ingalls Wilder: A Biography. Mr. Anderson lives and writes in Michigan.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4?An overview of Wilder's life accompanied by idealized illustrations that may blur the line between the facts and the fantasy presented by the TV series. Anderson touches on significant events: the places Laura settled with her family as a child and glimpses of everyday life; her marriage and adult life with Almanzo Wilder; and her work as an author. Andreasen's paintings, romantically rendered in warm tones, do provide period details, but often idealize the stark realities mentioned in the text. Readers old enough to be interested in Wilder will find this to be an adequate introduction but may find greater satisfaction in one of the numerous biographies that include some of the many photos of Laura and relics from her life, as well as a time line of her journeys. Her many fans will also appreciate Kathryn Lasky and Meribah Knight's Searching for Laura Ingalls (S & S, 1993), in which young Meribah Knight travels with her family to places featured in Wilder's books.?Susan M.
