Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'a charming book, resplendent with photos' for LIW fans, this book is pure delight. originally published for her considerable Japanese readership, the book is attentive to detail and chock full of photos and landscapes designed to evoke Wilder's chlidhood experiences. also included are original illustrations by Helen Sewell from the first editions, as well as Garth Homer's more familiar pictures. woven throughout is relevant commentary and contextual information by Anderson, considered a pre-eminent Wilder scholar. all in all, a rich addition to any Little House collection, a companion volume full of the details evoked so lovingly in the original books - Pa's fiddle, Mary's 9 patch quilt, the Daily Bread plate, wedding photos, homesteads, and the rolling landscapes which shaped and informed Laura's unique childhood. a very joyful volume.
