"The real things haven't changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong." -Laura Ingalls Wilder
Laura Ingalls Wilder was born Laura Elizabeth Ingalls on February 7, 1867, near the village of Pepin, in the "Big Woods" of Wisconsin. Her life here formed the basis for the book Little House in the Big Woods. Her parents possessed a pioneering spirit that urged them ever westward, to lands of promise and hope. The family finally settled in what would become De Smet, South Dakota Years later, Laura wrote about her experiences as a young teenager trying to survive the cold temperatures and lack of food, firewood, and other necessities.
In 1882, at the age of fifteen, she received her teaching certificate. For three years, Laura taught at a small country school a dozen miles from her home in De Smet and boarded with a family who lived nearby. A few years later she married and had a daughter, Rose and an unnamed son who died shortly after birth.
Wilder completed her first autobiographical work in the late 1920s. Entitled Pioneer Girl, it was a first-person account of her childhood on the frontier from the time she was three until she reached the age of eighteen.
In 1932, at the age of sixty-five, Wilder published the first of her eight "Little House" books, Little House in the Big Woods. It told the story of her early childhood years in Wisconsin and was a huge hit with readers. Farmer Boy, an account of Manly's childhood in New York State, followed in 1933. Two years later, Little House on the Prairie appeared on the shelves. Five more books followed that took the reader through Wilder's courtship and marriage to Manly— On the Banks of Plum Creek (1937), By the Shores of Silver Lake (1939), The Long Winter (1940), Little Town on the Prairie (1941), and These Happy Golden Years (1943). Harper reissued new editions of all of the “Little House” books in 1953 with the now-familiar illustrations of Garth Williams (1912–1996).
Wilder was ninety when she died at Rocky Ridge Farm on February 10, 1957.
