Laura Ingalls Wilder

Best known for her “Little House” books, Laura was born in a log cabin in Wisconsin and saw the frontier as her family traveled west as pioneer settlers. It is on these experiences that Laura based her books. She captured the successive phases of the American frontier by preserving her own memories of her travels. Though her first book was not published until she was 68, Laura continued to write until her death.
