Rose Wilder Lane (1886-1986) originally published Young Pioneers in 1933 serially as Let the Hurricane Roar in the Saturday Evening Post. The book is based on the childhood of her mother, Laura Ingalls Wilder. Originally the characters were named Charles and Caroline (Laura’s parents) but were changed to Molly and David when it was reissued in 1976. Like her mother’s books, Young Pioneers was seen on television in a three-part series in 1978.
