There is always room for one more Laura book.

I have a copy of Pioneer Girl manuscript that was transcribed by a research friend of mine in 1996. I have it on my iPad and plan to read it over the next month before Laurapbalooza on July 14th.

‘Little House on the Prairie’ Author’s Autobiography Published for First Time Ever

‘Little House on the Prairie’ Author’s Autobiography Published for First Time Ever



Laura Ingalls Wilder. Source: National Archives

Fangirls and boys of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House on the Prairie series know that the “fictional” account of the frontier life of a little girl named “Laura” is at least somewhat based on reality. But next summer, they will be able to find out if truth is better than fiction: for the first time, the author’s autobiography Pioneer Girl will be published.

Pamela Smith Hill, who’s editing and annotating the book, told The Rapid City Journal:


“We’re going to publish the original draft … because it gets us very, very close to Laura Ingalls Wilder’s original voice,” Hill said. She acknowledges that, like any writer, Wilder might “cringe to have her rough draft published.”

The book was first written in 1930 but never found its way into print directly — too boring, more than one publisher said. Much of the material was repurposed for the Little House series, the first installment of which came out in 1932. Laura’s daughter, Rose Wilder, had a hand in shaping the Little House series, notes The New Yorker:


[Rose] did some minor tinkering with “Pioneer Girl,” but, once it was decided to fictionalize the memoir as a children’s story—the idea had come from an editor who rejected the memoir—she took a more aggressive role. It varied in intensity from book to book, but she dutifully typed up the manuscript pages, and, in the process, reshaped and heightened the dramatic structure. She also rewrote the prose so drastically that Laura sometimes felt usurped. “A good bit of the detail that I add to your copy is for pure sensory effect,” Rose explained in a letter.

Now readers will be able to see exactly how much Rose pumped up her mother’s prose.

Happy Birthday, Laura Ingalls Wilder

This is a MUST in my Laura Ingalls Wilder collection. It sounds really intersting and I'd been wanting to have it among my books since I began to read about Mrs. Ingalls life and time...

Thanks to write about it, David, you are a dear! Thumbsup

An talking about Laura, I've always loved the pic you posted above. Laura looks really beatiful in it...Her eyes were very special. They were in a very special shade of blue,and her daughter Rose wrote that when our Half-Pint was angry, her eyes would look PURPLE! OhMy

That pic was with the article, and to be honest, I was rather surprised how pretty she was.
I'm not a real big Laura follower, but I plan on reading that bio - think it will be interesting, even if Albert isn't around!

For me, Laura was the prettiest of the four Ingalls girls.

If you read this bio, you'll like Laura a lot. She was a remarkable woman, indeed. Smile

Well Krissy, you and I will have to read it and compare notes!
We can do a book report on here, one from the female point of view
and one from the male point of view!

I always thought she was, too. In fact, I thought Almanzo was so nice-looking. And I think they made such a good-looking couple. And Rose, I always thought she was so pretty, too. I guess she was just the right combination of Laura and Almanzo. Smile
