Finally, in Laura Ingalls Wilder: A Biography, Laura's fans will find their answers. Noted Wilder historian William Anderson gives a warm, detailed account of both Laura's childhood and her adult life with her husband, Almanzo, and their daughter, Rose. Here too is a fascinating look at how Laura came to write the "Little House" books.
