    About "Laura Ingalls Wilder Rose Wilder Lane"

      • Laura Ingalls Wilder Rose Wilder Lane

        Ingalls wrote a series of historical fiction books for children based on her childhood growing up in a pioneer family She also wrote a regular newspaper column and kept a diary as an adult moving from South Dakota to Missouri, the latter of which has been published as a book.


    1. I read “On the Way Home” when I was a kid and just couldn’t appreciate it like I do now. It is a travel log that Laura kept on her journey from De Smet to Mansfield. Most of the book is just a record of the Wilder family’s daily activities with little of the beautiful prose I’m so used to in Laura’s books. As a child, I couldn’t hear Laura’s voice, and I got bored with the seemingly monotonous details. Now, I can read between the lines a little more, and I find it fascinating. I [...]

    2. Still struggling to catch up with my backlog of Laura Ingalls Wilder-related reading that I did last summer in preparation for our tour, which I'd also like to record eventually!This diary of Laura's trip from South Dakota to the Ozarks, as a young woman with a small daughter, in the wake of many domestic disasters that prompted the move, is one of the things that makes me totally discount the notion that Rose Wilder Lane (Laura's daughter) "wrote" the Little House books for Laura, a currently f [...]

    3. A friend of mine loaned me a thin hard cover book of the diary of a trip from South Dakota to Mansfield, Missouri in 1894 by Laura Ingalls Wilder 1867-1957). The forward of the book is written by Rose Wilder Lane (1886-1968) the daughter of LIW. There are a number of pictures in the book which I found most interesting.In 1894 South Dakota was stricken by a severe drought and the depression of the 1890s was under way. Laura and Almanzo Wilder decided to move to the Ozarks. Laura kept a day-to- da [...]

    4. I thought this book was very enjoyable. I've seen many reviews in which people went into it thinking it was going to be another Little House book, but what you have to remember is that when Laura wrote this she never meant to publish it. It was simply a little diary she kept on the 650-mile journey from De Smet, South Dakota to Mansfield, Missouri that she wrote in a 5-cent notebook. It lacks the polish of her most famous works, but it's still fascinating for all Laura Ingalls Wilder fans. Lurki [...]

    5. This really sets the stage for the Little House books! Ah, the Dust Bowl/drought and a reminder that so many traveled back and forth and yon in "the Wild West" before settling down. Another reminder (in addition to The Jam on the Vine) that the west was settled by so many recent immigrants to the U.S not just the Eastern European immigrants who first landed here--'cause they were all immigrants, after all! (Woe to the indigenous folks :( ) The daunting task of purchasing land and then the need t [...]

    6. I am such a Little House fan that I don't think I could ever give any of the books less than 4 stars. I'm not ashamed to say it: I am an adult, and the Little House books are still some of my favorites to read. This book is actually Laura's journal from her move to South Dakota to Missouri, which she wrote in everyday. The more I read these books, the more thankful I become that I was born when I was, rather than in the 1800's.

    7. I have far too much emotional attachment to rate this objectively, but I did like reading a more candid piece of writing from her.

    8. เป็นบันทึกประจำวัน ไม่ได้ถูกเกลาให้สละสลวยเหมือนกับเล่มอื่นๆมีแต่ข้อมูลดิบเป็นหลัก อ่านแล้วเปลี่ยนอารมณ์ไปเยอะเหมือนกันและตอนจบก็ค้างคาเหมือนไม่จบเอาจริงๆ ไม่อยากแนะนำใ [...]

    9. This book is interesting for a few reasons. It’s a categorical account of the Wilder’s trip from De Smet, SD to Mansfield, MO, including the cost for various work tasks and the number of wagons traveling both ways down the trail. Now, I know that sounds kind of boring and a lot of people think it is. But I found it really fascinating. It’s chock full of information that historians and history nerds find fascinating about that time. As a farm wife, the cost of labor and its products were fa [...]

    10. Nachdem das junge Paar Laura und Manly Wilder mehrere Jahre in Folge nur Missernten einfgefahren haben, beschließen die beiden 1894 mit ihrer Tochte Rose von DeSmet nach Mansfield in das Land des großen roten Apfels zu ziehen. Mit der befreundeten Familie Cooley ziehen Laura, Manly und Rose mit einem Pferdegespann in die Ozarks in Missouri. Während dieser Reise führt Laura Tagebuch, damit sie den Lieben daheim getreulich berichten kann, was sie auf dieser Reise erlebt hat.Dieses Buch ist der [...]

    11. Last night I took a break from the heavier reading (Mr. Ripley) to read something short: On the Way Home by Laura Ingalls Wilder and Rose Wilder Lane. The heart of the book is a short diary of the Wilder family's migration from De Smet to the Ozarks during a crop failure in 1894. Laura's contribution is a diary of brief entries for each day, mostly noting where they had traveled, what they ate and how hot it was. Rose's introduction, conclusion and periodic annotations flush this diary out to ex [...]

    12. Although much of this book is merely diary excerpts from Laura's travel journal, it's fascinating to see what she jots down about her trip with Manly and Rose from DeSmet, South Dakota to Mansfield, Missouri.Some of the places she traveled through are familiar to us, so that makes it especially interesting. However, I have to say that the "Setting by Rose Wilder Lane," as the book states it, is almost what makes the book. Laura's diary is introduced by her daughter Rose, who provided photos and [...]

    13. I hadn't heard of these last couple of Little House books until recently. It's not technically in the Little House series, but does continue to follow the Wilder family on their journey to Rocky Ridge Farm in Missouri, where Rose lived out her growing-up years. The observations Laura makes in her diary along the way definitely show she's lived the previous years as a farmer's wife: there are notations about how good the crops and land look, how much wheat and other crops are selling by the bushe [...]

    14. Reading Laura's dry diary gave me much insight into this practical pioneer. I liked her as much as ever. I also enjoyed the way my mind had to build the details of the trip (Laura cooking at all these strange places, sleeping out in the open on others' property, sweating like crazy in ridiculous temps, how such a careful person could lose a thermometer). But this is for only two types of readers: hard core Little House people, and history buffs. All others will probably be underwhelmed.

    15. Rereading this for the first time since I was a kid and found this on the shelf in the common room of the campground in New Glasgow, PEI where we stayed at every summer. The absolute horror of the missing $100 bill incident is undimmed by the passage of time.

    16. I never read this beforeI was completely unaware of its existence as a child, when I read all the other Laura Ingalls Wilder books. I found this surprisingly fascinating. I wish it were longer! It kind of made me think of the Oregon Trail game, in a way

    17. I recently re-read the Little House series, but I hadn't read On the Way Home. I enjoyed the diary entries of the move to Missouri. The Little House books are still one of my favorite series.

    18. I grew up reading Laura Ingalls books and watching the Little House on the Prairie TV series, so I enjoyed reading this book. It was neat to be reading Laura's actual journal entries.

    19. If you loved watching Little House on the Prairie when you were growing up you will absolutely love all of the books written by Laura Ingals Wilder.This one is no exception. I remember my grandmother telling me stories about how her mother crossed the country in a covered wagon. Hiding the plates we still have a few of in the small space between the false bottom of the wagon and the wagon itself. All wrapped up in newspapers and a few handmade cloths and crocheted doilies she had made.Reading th [...]

    20. Chronicling the migration of the Wilder family from Dakota Territory, where they had tried farming unsuccessfully for seven years, to their new home in Missouri, On the Way Home has three parts. The middle part is an actual diary of the trip by Laura Ingalls Wilder. The other parts are written by her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane: the first part provides a "setting" or introduction for the diary, and the last describes their purchase of and settling down on the new Missouri farm. So this book reall [...]

    21. There isn’t a lot to this slim little book. It is just a diary that Laura Ingalls Wilder kept on their trip from South Dakota to Missouri, where her and Almonzo finally settled. However, it was interesting just hearing about their life on the trail and all the other emigrants they met coming and going. There are some interesting pictures of Laura, Almonzo and Rose in here, as well as some of the towns they went through. If you are a fan of the Little House books you will like this one.

    22. My wife read the Little House books to the kids and I this Spring and Summer, leaving me with a real hunger to learn more about the life of the Ingalls/Wilder clan. This little diary (with introduction and postscript by Rose Wilder Lane) was very enjoyable, just to see what life on the trail from South Dakota to Missouri would be like 120 years ago.

    23. The young Wilder family travels from drought-stricken DeSmet SD to their permanent home in the Missouri Ozarks -- Mansfield MO. Laura's diary, embellished by her daughter Rose's recollections, is a fine read for her fans.

    24. I enjoyed this tail of Laura and Almanzo's cross-country trip to relocate in Missouri with their daughter, Rose. It is written in the form of a daily diary, though, and may not be to everyone's taste. Lots of descriptions of the weather, the towns they pass through, the terrain.

    25. Laura Ingalls Wilder is by far one of my favorite authors. When I found this diary I was so excited to read it and learn more from her adventures and how much she had to endure. I loved reading this book!
