New Release: Visiting Laura's Little Towns by Sandra Hume
For Laura Ingalls Wilder fans, there is nothing quite like going to the scene of the story. Every year—roughly May to October—thousands of fans descend upon the spots the Ingalls family called home in Wisconsin, Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, and South Dakota. They even visit her husband, Almanzo's, childhood home in New York as well as Mansfield, Missouri, where Laura lived out her adult life. And because the Little House books are for children (even though we adults read them), for generation after generation, these sites are the quintessential family destination.
"Family vacation" sounds idyllic, but parents know that the reality of traveling with little ones doesn't often match the dream. As a parent, traveler, and Laura Ingalls Wilder scholar, Sandra Hume has perfected the art of family travel to the Little House sites. Her "Visiting Laura's Little Towns" series addresses family concerns for this kind of travel. From how far in advance to reserve to what to expect to eat to the must-sees of each site, she guides families through the land of Laura Ingalls Wilder every step of the way.
Visit Laura's little towns ... because you want to go where Laura went.
