Little House in the Big Woods


katbaro on Flickr.com has this photo of Laura Ingalls-Wilder’s birthplace and says:

“In case you are wondering, its not the real house but a reproduction on the actual land. Since she didn’t write the books until she was in her 60’s I’m sure the original cabin was long gone before she was popular. You can find Ingalls & Wilder graves in the local cemeteries too. “

My wife and daughter have been reading the Little House books.  The books give great insight into how people lived, without running water or electricity.  It’s nice to be reminded that they are not just stories, but real people, who knew how to live.
