Letters From "The Little House"

Growing up on a prairie ultimately made Laura Ingalls Wilder famous. 

The Little House on the Prairie and related books made Wilder a beloved author, and led to the TV series of the 80s. 

Wilder is the focus of another book, but this one much more intimately connected to her. 

Because it's a collection of her correspondence, The Selected Letters of Laura Ingalls Wilder.  Biographer William Anderson had the pleasure of tracing Wilder's long (90 years) life and letters, and he visits with highlights.
