In Writings to Young Women from Laura Ingalls Wilder: On Life As a Pioneer Woman, Laura tells her readers what it was like to be a pioneer in the early 1900s. Her stories and insights show us how difficult even the simplest chores or tasks were for the early pioneers, yet through it all she continued to see each situation as an adventure--as if she was truly blazing the trail for future generations.

|About the Contributor(s)||Laura Ingalls Wilder
Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867. She began writing, at sixty-five, a series of eight children's books about her life in the pioneer west. These books were later turned into a world-reknowned TV series, Little House on the Prairie. We all came to know and love Laura and her family through these books and the TV series (now in syndicated reruns). She died in 1957.
