Laura Ingalls Wilder
The Hoover Presidential Library holds the papers of Laura Ingalls Wilder and her daughter Rose Wilder Lane. Laura and Rose worked together to shape Laura’s memories into books. Over the course of more than a dozen years — from the writing of Little House in the Big Woods in the early 1930s to the publication of These Happy Golden Years in 1943 — Laura and Rose captured the essence of life in frontier America in nine classic volumes. The extraordinary literary partnership between mother and daughter continues to unfold for the many teachers and their students who travel to the Hoover Library in West Branch, Iowa.
