About the Author:

William Anderson is a historian, educator, and author of twenty-five books of biography, travel, and history. His groundbreaking research on Laura Ingalls Wilder and her books led to many HarperCollins titles, including Laura Ingalls Wilder: A Biography, Laura Ingalls Wilder Country, and A Little House Sampler. He has also written for Travel & Leisure, the Saturday Evening Post, the Christian Science Monitor, and many other national magazines. Anderson is a frequent speaker at conferences, schools, and libraries. He makes his home in Michigan.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7-- This biography of the quintessential pioneer girl who lived the ``Little House'' stories and later captured them for posterity in her books is substantial in length and content. Like the subject's enduring series, it not only chronicles growing up on the frontier, but also pictures a way of life that has long since vanished. Many more people and events from Wilder's childhood and mature years appear here than in other juvenile accounts. Quotations from her works are woven into the text. Anderson brings credentials to the work, yet falters when discussing Wilder's awards. He states that Little House in the Big Woods (1932) became a Newbery Honor Book, when, in fact, On the Banks of Plum Creek (1937, both HarperCollins) was the first of the series so named. Compounding the error, he describes an Honor Book as ``the most outstanding children's book of the year.'' These inaccuracies aside, Anderson's colorful and detailed biography should prove popular with ``Little House'' devotees and students reporting on notable women or authors. Two sections of black-and-white photographs are included. --Pat Katka, San Diego Public Library
