"Anderson distills his 1992 biography, Laura Ingalls Wilder, into picture-book length, choosing details that readers will encounter, either directly or indirectly, when they get to Wilder's own stories.... [T]his volume is an engrossing pioneer story on its own, and a wonderful prelude to the Little House books." -- Kirkus
