Beautiful book, dreamy photos that transported me into another world. A life of hardship, but also of much beauty and grace.

For Little House Lovers, Marta McDowell travels the same journeys the Ingalls and Wilders took as pioneers. Her book is very well researched. I loved the actual handbills, catalogues, newspaper articles and photos from the time. The pictures of the real Laura and Almanzo Wilder were surprising. They did not look like television's Caroline and Charles.
McDowell sweetly matches the text with pictures from the books.
You can even plant the same flowers Ma, Laura and her daughter, Rose did.

For those who loved this journey. The books or the TV series. Or both.

This is a nice companion piece to Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House" series. It does a nice job of describing the various places her family lived and the flora of each locality. Like "Pioneer Girl," a complementary resource for any Wilder fans.
