Laura Ingalls Wilder's Books

The Laura Ingalls Wilder's books should be read by everyone. Not only are they extremely well written and very interesting, but they are also a slice of American history. I read them as a child and I still read them whenever I want to disappear into Laura's world. I offered these books in the hardback version because most people want to keep them for years. The paperback versions of each of them are also available.

With hopes of beginning a new life, the Wilders made their way to the Ozarks of Missouri. During their journey, Laura kept a detailed diary of events: the cities they passed through, the travelers they encountered on the way, the changing countryside, and the trials of an often difficult voyage.

bookcover The Laura Ingalls Wilder Country Cookbook (Little House Books Series) Laura Ingalls Wilder Leslie A. Kelly (Photographer) Commentaries by William Anderson
$17.46 Format: Hardcover, 1st ed., 152pp. Publisher: HarperCollins Children's Books Pub. Date: September 1995
A recently discovered recipe collection compiled during the author's life with Almanzo at Rocky Ridge Farm in Mansfield, MI. The 73 recipes are good, honest fare from the 1930s and '40s for everyday and special occasions. At least as interesting as the recipes is the glimpse into Wilder's happy and productive adult life as a farmer, friend, and writer. This large format book is full of black-and-white photographs of her family and friends, and full-color photos of Rocky Ridge Farm, inside and out. The farm pictures tend to be posed and repetitious; but for Wilder fans this volume will illuminate a facet of her life that is new for some readers. Barbara Walker's The Little House Cookbook (HarperCollins, 1979) is aimed at a younger audience and is more closely related to the books that made Wilder famous.-Carolyn Jenks, First Parish Unitarian Church, Portland, ME
