The Little House series (also known as "Laura Years") is based on decades-old memories of Laura Ingalls Wilder's childhood in the Midwest region of the United States during the late 19th century. The best-known of the books is Little House on the Prairie. The books are told in the third person, with Laura Ingalls acting as the central character and protagonist, and are generally classified as historical fiction rather than as autobiography, although several of the later books are almost purely autobiographical. Wilder's daughter, author and political theorist Rose Wilder Lane, assisted her mother with the editing of the books. The depth of her involvement, and the extent of her influence on the theme and content of the books, has been the subject of some debate in recent years, but almost all Laura scholars and her biographers consider that the writing of the books was a tense but ultimately effective continuing collaboration between mother and daughter - Laura writing the books, Rose editing them.

Story

At the beginning of this story, Pa Ingalls decides to sell the house in the Big Woods of Wisconsin, and move to the Indian Territory near Independence, Kansas, based on widely circulating stories at that time that the land (technically still under Osage ownership) would be opened to settlement imminently. So Laura, along with Pa and Ma, and Mary and baby Carrie, move to Kansas. Along the way, Pa trades his two horses for two western mustangs, which Laura and Mary name Pet and Patty. When the family reaches Indian Territory, Pa builds their Little House on the Prairie. Soon, the family meets Mr. Edwards, a "wildcat from Tennessee". During this story, the Ingalls family nearly dies from a disease called at that time "Fever and Ague" (fever with severe chills and shaking) which was later identified to be malaria. Mr. Edwards gives Laura and Mary their Christmas presents from Independence. Pa builds a roof and a floor in their house, digs a well, and the Ingalls plant the beginnings of a small farm. At the end of this book, the government makes Pa Ingalls and his family move again. Charles Ingalls with his wife Caroline Ingalls Charles Phillip Ingalls was the father of Laura Ingalls Wilder, known for her Little House on the Prairie series of books. ...

Many of the incidents in the book are actual situations that happened to the Ingalls family at that time, as told to Laura by her Pa, Ma and sister Mary over the years. Laura was, in fact, two to three-and-a-half years old while her family lived in Indian Territory during 18691870, and did not remember the incidents herself. For this reason, Laura did more historical research on this novel than on any other novel she wrote, in an attempt to have all details as correct as possible. She is portrayed in the book as being six to seven years old, as she had already established a chronology in her first book Little House in the Big Woods, and had to stay with that chronology. In truth, the instances described in Little House in the Big Woods happened to the Ingalls family after their return from Indian Territory. This is also why Baby Carrie is portrayed as making the trip to Indian Territory with the family, when she was, in reality, born in Indian Territory in August of 1870 (as recorded in their family Bible) shortly before the family left to return to Wisconsin. With her fourth book, On the Banks of Plum Creek, Laura is, from that point on, describing her own age correctly, and most events as they actually happened. 1869 (MDCCCLXIX) is a common year starting on Friday (link will take you to calendar) of the Gregorian calendar or a common year starting on Sunday of the 12-day-slower Julian calendar. ... 1870 (MDCCCLXX) was a common year starting on Saturday (link will display the full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar (or a common year starting on Monday of the 12-day slower Julian calendar). ...

Actual location of the "Little House"

Laura had always heard from her family that the little house was "40 miles from Independence", which would have put the house approximately where the town of Nowata, Oklahoma, is today. It was actually almost exactly 13 miles from Independence, not 40 miles, and the reason for this rather large discrepancy is not known. The actual site of the Charles Ingalls house in Indian Territory was established conclusively in the late 1950s through careful record research done by a librarian named Margaret Clement. There is today a facsimile log cabin on that site, near Wayside, Kansas. Nowata is a city located in Nowata County, Oklahoma. ...

Critical reviews

In recent years, some have written books and articles that challenge one or many aspects of the stories, such as Constructing the Little House by Ann Romines, or articles by Anita Clair Fellman. Others have critiqued Wilder's portrayal of American Indians (the Osage figure prominently in the story). Other articles point out what she did get right concerning the Osage.[1] Native Americans are the indigenous peoples from the regions of North America now encompassed by the continental United States, including parts of Alaska. ...

The state of Kansas has designated the childhood home of the Ingalls South of Independence as a historic site, which is open to visitors. It is the location from which the events of the book Little House on the Prairie take place. It includes a cabin modeled after the original (at the William Kurtis ranch), and the original post office. Much of the surrounding countryside retains its open and undeveloped nature.

At first, the Ingalls family lived with their friends, the Ensigns. Pa built a house in town, and worked as a storekeeper, butcher, then carpenter. In the spring of 1879, Mary became very ill. Her illness was followed by a stroke, which resulted in blindness. Soon afterward, Pa's sister Docia came from the Big Woods and offered him a job with the railroad going west. Though Ma wanted to remain in Walnut Grove, Pa felt a better future could be found in Dakota Territory. After making a promise to Ma that it would be their last move ever (a promise he kept) he accepted Docia's offer gladly, thus ending the Ingalls' stay in Walnut Grove, eventually settling for good in DeSmet, South Dakota.
