At the heart of this keepsake volume are nine chapters centered around the Little House books, each exploring in detail the stories, houses, landscapes, journeys, food, activities, and crafts in each story. Maps, family trees, photographs, recipes, and a timeline round out the history of Laura and her family. Laura’s real life was sometimes different from the life she wrote about in her books, and those differences are described here along with a chapter about her adult life and how she came to write the Little House series.
