A Family Collection - Laura Ingalls Wilder
When I came across A Family Collection by Laura Ingalls Wilder at the thrift store (for $1.81) I had to buy it.
This book is a collection of articles and stories written by Laura for the "Missouri Ruralist" (a widely-read farm paper) between 1911 and 1918. Not only does it give a glimpse into some of Laura's life after the Little House books, but it also gives a closer look at farm life in general as well as Laura's thoughts on social changes (such as women's rights) and historical events (the war).
I have been enjoyed it immensely. You can find a used copy for very little on Amazon.com. But of course, you don't HAVE to have the book to read the articles. You can find the eBook online at Books-A-Million.
