The World of Laura Ingalls Wilder by Marta McDowell. Published by Timber Press

I loved the Little House books when I was growing up, so this book was a real treat for me. McDowell visits each place the Ingalls lived and using drawings, photos, maps and illustrations from some of the oldest Wilder books, tells the real story of how the family cleared the land, built their homes, farmed, cooked, celebrated happy occasions and mourned sad occasions. I was as caught up in this book as I was in the original books and it brought back so many happy memories of reading the original books.  McDowell takes readers inside Laura Ingalls Wilder’s life in a way they will never have experienced before. Highly recommended
