Laura Ingalls Wilder (1867-1957) published Little House in the Big Woods in 1932. There are 8 books in the original series with a 9th book published after her death and was unfinished. There are numerous spin-off series. The television series based on the books, Little House on the Prairie, starred Melissa Gilbert and Michael Landon. It aired for 9 seasons from 1974-1983. There is some speculation that Wilder’s daughter, Rose Wilder Lane, co-authored or wrote entirely the books attributed to Wilder.

Little House Books

I devoured these books as a child. I found them easier to read than Canadian author L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables at the time I attempted both. So much so that it would years later before I would try them again. I of course grew up on the books and the TV series. I was a bit disappointed when my daughters’ attention was not held by these classics. These are a close second to my all-time favorites by Louisa May Alcott.

I am married to a member of the U.S. Merchant Marine. Specifically, married to a Chief Engineer. Thus the name Snipe Wife. While in some circles "Snipe" is a derogatory term for engineers, I use it with pride and affection. Ours is not a unique situation but it is far less common than most. This is for everyone who asks me what is the Merchant Marine and how do I handle the "life."
