Happy 148th birthday Laura Ingalls Wilder! 

Laura Ingalls Wilder was one of my favorite authors when I was a girl. Wilder brought live on the American prairie alive for me! I could see how the settlers made their homes and lived their lives.  I was captivated by such a remarkably different life and existence. 

Thank you Laura for giving the history of our country names and faces, through the Ingalls family we saw our own past generations of families. We saw them as real people, in a different time and place. When times were tough and survival on the dusty prairies was not guaranteed.

Thanks so much for feeding this young woman's imagination!
