Whenever I opened The Selected Letters of Laura Ingalls Wilder by William Anderson, I was instantly transported back to my childhood.
I read all of the Little House books as a kid, and I have been interested in Laura Ingalls Wilder since becoming a writer myself. This book gives us a look into Laura’s relationship with her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane, who helped her with the Little House books. Seeing the correspondence between the two (mainly from L.I.W. to her daughter) was quite interesting. It gives us a unique look into everything it took to make the Little House books a reality. I would definitely be interested in a book of letters penned by Rose Wilder Lane, as there aren’t very many in this book.
