Written by Marta McDowell, Illustrated by Helen Sewell & Garth Williams

2017 is the 150th anniversary of Laura Ingalls Wilder's birthday. Her beloved Little House series tells a classic come-of-age story based on Wilder's own family life and is a reflection of the pioneer spirit of the time.

Follow the wagon trail of the series, starting in the Wisconsin, continuing to the Dakotas and finally to Missouri. Throughout, you'll learn details about Wilder's life and inspirations, discover how to visit the real places today and even learn to grow the plants and vegetables featured in the stories.

The artful package includes original illustrations by Helen Sewell and Garth Williams, along with historical and contemporary photographs. This book is a must-have treasure for the millions of readers enchanted by Laura's wild and beautiful life.
