#TFBRC Nonfiction

I'm still working my way through this one a little a a time, but I'm loving this deeper look into the life and journey of Laura Ingalls Wilder. It's a big hardback, like a coffee table book, so there's lots of space for large images and a side column for the notations.


Pioneer Girl follows the Ingalls family's journey through Kansas, Missouri, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, back to Minnesota, and on to Dakota Territory sixteen years of travels, unforgettable experiences, and the everyday people who became immortal through Wilder's fiction. Using additional manuscripts, letters, photographs, newspapers, and other sources, award-winning Wilder biographer Pamela Smith Hill adds valuable context and leads readers through Wilder's growth as a writer. Do you think you know Laura? Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography will re-introduce you to the woman who defined the pioneer experience for millions.

#FallIntoBooks #ChildhoodFavorite

I absolutely loved The Little House on the Prairie books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, and read them several times throughout my childhood and teen years. These Happy Golden Years was probably my first sweet romance ;) I credit these books for my love of pioneer stories and westerns. I'm planning to borrow the audiobooks from our library to listen to with my five year old at bedtime.
