There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. Getting beyond the hideous cover clearly based on the TV series and having NO relation to the real people , this book is interesting in the way it's written and its content.
It's not a scholarly piece of work, it's designed to inform and entertain. Zochart admits as much in the beginning where he explains why he leaves out footnotes. He does note that he did do extensive research for the book; he must have, but the lack of any documentation is somewhat disconcerting. There's plenty of background information on the time Laura was a young girl which is the period I've always been most interested in. Burr Oak and Walnut Grove is covered in detail filling in that time that Laura leaves out of her series and there's a lot less on LIW's later years and her relationship with Rose.
It's written in a breezy, somewhat romanticized style meant to pull on your heartstrings. I really enjoy the more academic books on LIW, but if you're a hard core fan, you'd have to have a heart of stone not to be moved at the very end of the book describing her last days, which were certainly embellished. I don't regret having this book as part of my collection. It gives another dimension to LIW that's just a little more fun and not as dry as the others out there - but take his information with a grain of salt!
The photos are a great part of the book but I wish he had included more of them. I own the 7 individual books of Laura's life so when I saw this book in a book store I wanted it. The pictures are of the real people not drawings as in 7 books. It tells a whole lot more of people that we know through the tv shows and stories.

In our family when my youngest daughter was still at home, always enjoyed watching the series "Little House On the Prairie", so to read more about the author Laura Ingalls Wilder, was a very enjoyable read. Anyone whoever enjoyed watching the series, will surly enjoyed this book that is filled with history of the area's that she and her family resided at. I for one, highly recommend this books written by Donald Zochert.
