Three stars is a little harsh for a travel guide that I ve read through twice already and keep handy by my table in case I need to plan my trip tomorrow.Sorry It has lots of stuff to do and see, good pictures, directions to get everywhere and even some restaurant tips I won t know how good those directions and tips are until I go, but I ll definitely give them a shot.My only criticism is that the book could have been twice as long, with museums and exhibits that maybe weren t Little House centr [...]
One book I ve poured over through the years is the Little House Guide Book by William Anderson I ve got a signed copy from the author from Little House Days at Heritage Hill in Green Bay The book details all of the Wilder sites around the country with pictures, how to get there, what is good to see, and other area attractions I especially liked this book as you knew what to expect at the sites It was a great reference for our trip to Pepin and Walnut Grove.This review was originally published in [...]
Anything about Laura Ingalls Wilder by William Anderson is a must read I saw a review that said information about things non Laura would be appreciated These are very small towns where they haven t disappeared because of their connection to Laura There s not much else there Also this book is helpful because the options are limited.
What a delightful book Wonderful information, beautiful artwork, and fabulous photography My only wish is that it would be updated so that the information is accurate some of the businesses mentioned have closed, and prices and hours have altered over the years as well.
Another book I read a while ago Definitely a book I go back to often and reference when I am planning a trip near one of the Little House sites, as I make sure I have time in the trip to visit the sites or want to relive memories of a visit.
This was really fun Makes me want to do a roadtrip I only gave it four stars because some of it will or has already go out of date pretty quickly But the parts about the sites and where to visit, combined with the websites make it worth checking out
I am seriously thinking about taking my geekdom to an all new level and going to tour the Laura Ingalls Wilder homesites I just find it fascinating and really want to take a road trip This was a great and informative guidebook.
A must have if you want to go searching for the Little Houses
This is such a helpful travel guide to all the Little House sites, giving history, biographical snippets, as well as places to see and stay and eat along the way.
I just finished a road trip hitting 7 of the 8 Laura Ingalls Wilder sites in the last week, and this book was super helpful The author included enough details so that I didn t miss anything at the sites Some of the reviews mentioned that some of the information like hotels and restaurants is outdated, but that s what the internet is for It was really nice having the information all in one spot, and because of those sites are remote, the directions were also super important There will have to be [...]
Far better than Little House Country, this has updated photos that actually make all of the places look like something you d want to go see My disappointment comes from the very stilted cleaned up version of history that s presented when it comes to the Little House on the Prairie site, though, where it s explained that Pa didn t know that he was settling on Indian Territory highly unlikely and that eventually all of the unrest was settled when the Indians were given a fair price for the governm [...]
It was fun reading this book after I visited most of the sites this summer My only complaint is that, even though this is an updated version of the book published in the 1990s, it is woefully out of date the problem with guidebooks The prices are higher than the book lists and the tours weren t quite the same What I think should be added to the book in the next update is how to get to the beach in Pepin to pick up pebbles I d love to know, too, if there is an idea at which point the Ingalls cros [...]
I am wanting to do a road trip of most of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Homesites and this is definitely the resource you need to do that It gives information on the homesites, which is great but it also gives information on how to get there, where to stay and where to eat Some of these little towns don t have hotels and restaurants to the book tells you where the nearest places are as well The pictures in the book are phenomenal as well.
It would be fun to follow the trail detailed is this little guide from homestead site to homestead site, maybe sit on the banks of Plum Creek The facts both historical and contemporary are out of date and somewhat backward in tone but the journey is nicely photgraphed.
What I thought would be uninteresting has totally renewed my wish to some day make a trip to see all of the places Laura Ingalls Wilder lived Loved it
One of the best guidebooks for a little house trek
Good, helpful information Hopefully, we can plan a road trip in the near future to visit all the famous Laura Ingalls sites
