Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I remembered reading these books as a child and watching the television show. After re-visiting these books once again, I like them even more. Kudos to the Library of America for publishing these volumes and to editor Caroline Fraser for the insightful historical footnotes. They give the reader a context to place the lives of the Ingalls-Wilder families and reminds that these were real people facing real hardships in the development of the American West.
