Laura Ingalls Wilder, Farm Journalist: Writings from the Ozarks

by Laura Ingalls Wilder Steven W. Hines

(front cover flap) Laura Ingalls Wilder WRITINGS FROM THE OZARKS Edited by Stephen W. Hines Before Laura Ingalls Wilder found fame with her Little House books, she made a name for herself with short nonfiction pieces in magazines and newspapers. Read today, these pieces offer insight into her development as a writer and depict farm life in the Ozarks- and also show us a different Laura Ingalls Wilder from the woman we have come to know. This volume collects essays by Wilder that originally appeared in the Missouri Ruralist between 1911 and 1924. Building on the initial compilation of these articles under the title Little House in the Ozarks, this revised edition marks a more comprehensive collection by adding forty-two additional Ruralist articles and restoring passages previously omitted from other articles.

A Little House Traveler: Writings from Laura Ingalls Wilder's Journeys Across America

by Laura Ingalls Wilder

(front flap) Ages 10 up By the mid-1950s Laura Ingalls Wilder's journeys had taken her from Wisconsin to South Dakota, from Missouri to California and back again. She had traveled by wagon, by train, and by car; alone, with her husband, and with her daughter. She had watched the times, seasons, and people change over six decades of traveling. But one thing remained the same: Laura always kept a pencil and paper with her to jot down notes about her experiences. For the first time ever, writings from three of Laura's most memorable trips have been collected in one special omnibus edition featuring historical black-and-white photographs. ON THE WAY HOME recounts her 1894 move with Rose and Almanzo from South Dakota to their new homestead in Mansfield, Missouri. WEST FROM HOME consists of letters from Laura to Almanzo as she traveled to California in 1915 to visit Rose. And previously unpublished materials from Laura and Almanzo's car trip in 1931 now tell the story of their first journey back to DeSmet, the town where Laura grew up, where she met Almanzo, and where they fell in love. Laura's candid sense of humor and keen eye for observation shine through in this wonderful collection of writings about the many places Laura Ingalls Wilder called home. HarperCollinsPublishers
