A report in the Strib (Minneapolis Star Tribune) says the Laura Ingalls Wilder autobiography will detail a realistic view of prairie life.
The photo of Laura Ingalls Wilder on the left was taken in 1894 at age 27. The photo on the right was taken in 1937 at age 70.
The author moved to De Smet, South Dakota in the late 1870s with her family. It was there where she met her future husband Almanzo Wilder.
Wilder wrote one of the most beloved children's series of the 20th century, which was turned into a sanitized version of frontier life in the form of the hit TV series Little House on the Prairie.
Fans of Little House on the Prairie will find the Ingals memoir a more realistic, grittier view of frontier living.
