LAURA INGALLS WILDER COUNTRY by William...

LAURA INGALLS WILDER COUNTRY by William Anderson (Harper: $19.95). Laura Wilder’s popular children’s books, including “The Long Winter,” “By the Shores of Silver Lake” and “Little House on the Prairie,” were largely autobiographical. With photographer Leslie Kelly, William Anderson traces Wilder’s peripatetic family, noting how the various residences of her frontier childhood--many of which have been restored by her fans--were transformed into the little houses of her stories. This handsome book is sure to please anyone who loved Wilder’s books as a child--or a child who’s just discovering them.
