Laura in love
Fifteen-year-old Laura has found a job as a schoolteacher in a nearby town. She soon realizes that her teaching position isn't quite what she expected. Laura can't wait for Friday afternoons, when Almanzo Wilder arrives to take her home to her family for the weekend. Before she knows it, Laura finds herself thinking of Almanzo in a whole new way.About the Author:
Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867–1957) was born in a log cabin in the Wisconsin woods. With her family, she pioneered throughout America’s heartland during the 1870s and 1880s, finally settling in Dakota Territory. She married Almanzo Wilder in 1885; their only daughter, Rose, was born the following year. The Wilders moved to Rocky Ridge Farm at Mansfield, Missouri, in 1894, where they established a permanent home. After years of farming, Laura wrote the first of her beloved Little House books in 1932. The nine Little House books are international classics. Her writings live on into the twenty-first century as America’s quintessential pioneer story.
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.
