Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote the famous Little House® books about her early life on the prairie. But she wrote those wonderful, warm works in a farm house in the Ozark hills of southern Missouri. This book contains candid talk about Laura Ingalls and Almanzo Wilder from their Ozark neighbors. Sit down with their good friends and learn about Laura and Almanzo, down home and close up. Read discussions of their life in the Ozarks; why Laura’s books make us happy; and whether or not their daughter Rose wrote Laura’s books, as has been alleged. The book includes extensive selections from Laura’s most beautiful thoughts and writings, taken from her magazine articles of nearly a century ago, full of the same warmth and beauty that is in her Little House® stories. Laura’s Little House® books tell of cold northern winters, but she wrote them with a warm Ozark heart. This book is a record of Ozarkers recalling two of their own, and Little House® fans of all ages should relish these personal insights.

About the Author:

Most people who write about Laura are academics and lawyers and such, who choose to live in suburbs with urban sprawl and five o'clock rush hours. That is who they are. That is not who Laura and Almanzo were. They chose to live on a small farm in the Ozark hills, even when daughter Rose urged them to leave, even when they became famous and well-to-do. They chose to live there until the day they died. That is who they were. Little Ozark farm people. Little House® people. This book, Laura Ingalls' Friends Remember Her, is by and about Ozarkers. Dan L. White and his family settled in the Ozarks some years ago about 12 miles up the road from Laura's Rocky Ridge Farm. There they live on a forty acre Ozark farmstead, with cows, horses, chickens, goats, blackberries, black walnuts, ticks and chiggers. In this book Dan talks with other down home folks in the Ozarks who were close friends of Laura and Almanzo and gives us a view of the Little House® lady from her own kind - the Little House® kind of people. Dan is also the author of other books about Laura: Laura's Love Story: the lifetime love of Laura Ingalls and Almanzo Wilder Devotionals with Laura: Laura's Favorite Bible Selections Laura Ingalls Wilder's Most Inspiring Writings
