"The Little House books, attributed to Laura Ingalls Wilder, are indisputably brilliant classics of children's literature; but the singular attribution is shown to be in error in this meticulous biography of Laura's daughter Rose (1886-1966). Rose shaped every sentence of her mother's reminiscences, transforming rudimentary notes into eloquent books that exquisitely capture a child's perception of pioneer life and express hopes and aspirations at America's bedrock. Rose was an unconventional woman who wrote and travelled extensively and espoused passionately-held libertarian views; her story is fascinating, even without the startling revelation of her authorship." Annotation c. by Book News, Inc. , Portland, Or. Because of the time period in which Rose lived and because the author quotes extensively from her journals, diaries and correspondence, there is a great deal of U.S. and world history in this book, and descriptions of various countries and cities in which she traveled and lived at various times
