The World of Laura Ingalls Wilder

The Frontier Landscapes that Inspired the Little House Books


Come explore a Wilder garden.


Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House series chronicled frontier life starting in the late 1860s. The classic books are both coming of age stories and a reflection of the pioneer attitudes of the time. They are also deeply rooted in the natural world—the plants, animals, and landscapes are integral to the stories. The World of Laura Ingalls Wilder considers Wilder’s life and her relationship to the natural world. Looking into Wilder's world also illuminates our own relationship to the nature, family, and memory.

Featuring original art by Helen Sewell and Garth Williams and historical images, maps, botanical illustrations, and contemporary photographs.

The Garden Writers Association awarded The World of Laura Ingalls Wilder its Silver Media Award in 2018.
