The back cover art of my paperback copy was obviously done by an artist more used to illustrating bodice-rippers. Laura is depicted in the traditional long skirt, but her blouse is open to the waist and shows a very low bustier or chemise. Woo-hoo, Laura Ingalls Wilder shows some skin! Hardly authentic, but very amusing to see. The book itself contains some interesting facts, including that the "Olson" family was actually the "Jones" family, which pleased my Celtic soul. Also, the tortuous path some researchers have followed in order to verify or augment the facts of the Ingalls and Wilder family history was interesting to me. However, the author's attempt to copy the "Little House" style of writing is annoying. I don't know if the author intentionally copied the style or it crept up on him as he studied LAW's life, but it detracts from the book's impact. Still, even with its faults, this is a book worth reading by adult LAW fans.
