|I really enjoyed Laurapalooza and that got me to wondering about the research that has been done on Carrie Ingalls because I really enjoyed that presentation. Is there enough material on her for a book? Is that something that has ever been considered? Gabrielle Spiers

|Thank you for opening up a members forum for us to come and meet and chat with others about our love for The Ingalls and Wilder families. To discuss their mark in history and to discuss how they helped mold the future of this land. Ever wonder what they would say or what expressions would be on their faces if they were alive today, in 2012, to see just how far we have come in agriculture, farming, journalism, electricity, telephones, cooking/kitchen tools, etc, etc.
I would also like to say that I am very blessed to share Laura’s birthday of February 7. Though, the years between our births span an exact century plus 1. She was born in 1867 and I, In 1968.
I have always been drawn to her books and can recall watching every episode of the program on TV. As I grew up my love for journalism grew to the point I now am a E-published poet (online and a couple poems in a few anthologies). I am working on a book ideas as well.

|Do you have a Laura Ingalls Wilder letter? One of my projects is gathering photocopies of Laura Ingalls Wilder letters which I deposit at the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum in Walnut Grove, Minnesota. So far I’ve rescued 24 letters, can you help add to that number? Find out more:

|Now that the Homesteader is wrapping up its final three issues (yes, they are still coming!), I’m embarking on a new writing endeavor for Little House travelers. Periodically I will be releasing ebooks (available for Kindle reading) on traveling to all the different Little House sites. The first site to be the subject of a travel guide will be De Smet, South Dakota, which is currently in the editing stage. I’m also blogging at Little House Travel, where the ebooks will be sold; soon the site will also be accepting reviews of lodging, restaurants, and attractions.
“Like” the Little House Travel page on Facebook if you want to be kept up to date on what’s new and to be notified of book releases.
|Looking for more reading material in the same genre as “Little House?” Try “The Newcombe Creek Chronicles,” a Depression-era story written from the perspective of a little Kentucky farm girl. The series is based on the life of the author’s grandmother. Two titles are currently available: The Year of Plenty and The Year of Sacrifice.
