Overview

Though best known as the author of the Little House books, Laura Ingalls Wilder led a full, rich life that spanned almost a century of American history. All through her life Laura saved mementos of her past, including early writings, letters, drawings, and photographs, which have been lovingly preserved in private and public collections across the country.

Now, for the first time ever, these photographs, writings, and memorabilia have been gathered together in one incredible volume by noted Little House historian William Anderson. Each gorgeous page of LAURA'S ALBUM is a doorway into the private world of Laura Ingalls Wilder, and offers a unique glimpse of what her life was like. Here is the fascinating true story of this remarkable pioneer woman's life as well as an unforgettable tale of our own American past.

This book was set up similar to a scrapbook with pictures from throughout her life and then had some captions of biographical facts. I loved being able to look at all the pictures and really imagine her life, especially since she is so well known. I will absolutely be using this book in my classroom and even with my own children.

A nice collection of items preserved from the life of Laura Ingalls Wilder. Some are things you hear mentioned/described, such as Laura's name cards. Some are things that you never you about, such as pictures Pa had drawn for them when they were little or a book Almanzo had given her in their courting days. For fans it's another peek into the real life of the author.
