Meet the Author

Laura Ingalls Wilder lived the events described in her Little House books. As a young girl, she traveled with her parents and her older sister, Mary, in a covered wagon across Minnesota, Iowa, and Kansas, and into Indian Territory, where they lived in the Little House on the Prairie. Then the family traveled back to western Minnesota and lived on the banks of Plum Creek. Finally, they went west again and settled on the shores of Silver Lake in Dakota Territory.
