Historical Flavor: Laura Ingalls Wilder

Sandra Ardoin @Sandra Ardoin

Like many young girls growing up, the Little House books of Laura Ingalls Wilder stoked my reading habit. Who knows? They may have even influenced my desire to write historicals of that time period. So when I saw this article in Publisher’s Weekly, 10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Laura Ingalls Wilder, I had to read it. Not being a LIW scholar, I can’t say how factual these “facts” are, but I thought they were interesting.

As well, I’m fascinated by photographs of the era and found this video showing photos of the Ingalls/Wilder families. It moves a little slow, but gives the viewer time to read the captions. Enjoy!
