Pioneer Girl: The Story of Laura Ingalls Wilder
The pioneer spirit lives on...
Readers around the world know and love Laura, the little girl born in the Big Woods of Wisconsin and raised in covered wagons and on wide open prairies. Now Little House fans can learn more about "Half-pint" in this, the first picture book biography book of Laura Ingalls Wilder.
With a simple, glowing text by noted historian and Little House scholar William Anderson, and glorious paintings by Dan Andreasen, Pioneer Girl is a very special portrait of a writer whose classic books and poineer adventures have made her one of the most popular literary figures in America.
"It is no mean feat that Anderson has managed to pack as much of her storied life into Pioneer Girl …Andreason’s work has cinematic quality in its sweep."
