At 65 years old, Laura Ingalls Wilder decided to write down the many stories of her pioneer childhood so that they would not be forgotten. In her eight-volume children's series, the "Little House" books, she detailed her family's travels in a covered wagon to Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota and Missouri. In the process, she became one of the world's best-loved children's authors. Her books have sold more than 60 million copies worldwide and have been translated into more than 40 languages.
