Laura Ingalls Wilder

(1867 - 1957)

Laura Ingalls Wilder became a schoolteacher in the Dakota Territories at the age of fifteen in 1882. Visiting her journalist daughter in San Francisco in 1915, she wrote that she wanted “to do a little writing” with her “to get the hang of it a little better, so I can write something perhaps I can sell.” Wilder published the first of her eight “Little House” novels in 1932, at the age of sixty-five.
