I remember growing up reading the Laura Ingalls books – the entire Little House on the Prairie series which I later passed on to my daughter.
I would read these books over and over and my sister and I would always watch the “Little House on the Prairie” t.v. show every Wednesday night at 7 p.m.

You can go back in your memory bank with the Dallas Children’s Theater’s production. Wilder, the writer of the adventures, talked about what it was like to grow up two centuries ago in the land of covered wagons.
This year commemorates the season with one of the most heartfelt productions of the American frontier.
Ingalls Wilder later had a daughter, Rose Wilder Lane but before all that, Ingalls Wilder and her family moved near the banks of Plum Creek in Minnesota in the 1800s. In 1879 they moved to Dakota Territory.
Ingalls Wilder was in her 70s when she wrote the last of the Little House books, her life spanning nine decades.
Part of her life involved being a teacher which began in 1882. She married Almanzo J. Wilder in 1885 and her daughter was born the next year.
In 1932 Little House in the Big Woods was published. Ingalls Wilder was 65 years old. After others, this was followed by By The Shores of Silver Lake, published in 1939.
Little Town on the Prairie was published in 1943.
After a successful writing career that spanned years, Ingalls Wilder passed away at the age of 90.
The Little House books contain several references to wildflowers. Seventeen different kinds could be found on the prairie.
