After school today Daddy came by and we went to Sears Roebuck and got me a pair of shoes. Black oxfords.
|Laura Elizabeth Ingalls Wilder (February 7, 1867 – February 10, 1957)|
After settling with her husband and family on a farm in the Missouri Ozarks,
Wilder began writing a colum "As a Farm Woman Thinks" for the Missouri
Realist. In 1930, Wilder asked her daughter Rose for an opinion about a book
she had written - a biographical manuscript about her pioneering childhood later
titled Little House in the Big Woods. In 1932, this became her first published
book. By the time she finished her last one, These Happy Golden Years, some
11 years later, she had become one of America's best-loved children's authors.
Her books went on to become t he inspiration for a popular telelvision series
based on the series, Little House on the Prairie.
Laura Ingalls Wilder is buried with her husband and daughter Rose in the
town cemetery in Mansfield, Missouri.
