From the Back Cover:

By the time she was thirteen years old, Laura Ingalls had moved from the green Wisconsin woods to the wide-open Kansas prairie, out to the fertile Minnesota plains, and finally to a brand-new town at the end of a railroad line in Dakota Territory. True pioneers, Laura and her family faced everything from severe droughts and bone-chilling winters to crop failures and grasshopper invasions in their long search for a new life on land of their own. Laura went on to write the classic Little House series, drawing inspiration from the real events of her childhood on the American frontier.

Ever since Little House in the Big Woods was published in 1932, readers of all ages have been eager to learn more about Laura Ingalls Wilder. At the heart of this keepsake volume are nine chapters centered around the Little House books, each exploring in detail the stories, houses, landscapes, journeys, food, activities, and crafts in each story. Maps, family trees, photographs, recipes, and a timeline round out the history of Laura and her family. Laura's real life was sometimes different from the life she wrote about in her books, and those differences are described here along with a chapter about her adult life and how she came to write the Little House series.

Meticulously researched, lovingly written, and beautifully illustrated, The World of Little House is for anyone who has ever read and loved the Little House books.

About the Author:

Carolyn Strom Collins and Christina Wyss Eriksson grew up reading the Little House books. Hoping to answer some of their questions about Laura and Little House, they visited every Little House site and museum and did in-depth research on Laura and her family. The result is The World of Little House. Both authors live with their families in the St. Paul-Minneapolis area of Minnesota, about a four-hour drive from where Laura lived in On the Banks of Plum Creek. In addition to writing The World of Little House, they are also the authors of My Little House Crafts Book, The Anne of Green Gables Treasury, and The Little Women Treasury.



Deborah Maze is the illustrator of several picture books as well as a line of greeting cards. She is a lifelong reader of the Little House books and has fond memories of reading them to her children when they were young. She lives with her family in southern California.

Garth Williams's classic illustrations for the Little House books caused Laura to remark that she "and her folks live again in these pictures." Garth Williams also illustrated Charlotte's Web, Stuart Little, and almost one hundred other books.
