More Description

Laura Ingalls Wilder is one of the most beloved children's authors of all time, but William Holtz contends that she may not have been the sole author of the "Little House" series that bore her name. While Laura's life did serve as the inspiration for the books, Holtz believes that her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane, actually took her mother's memoirs and refurbished them into the novels that would be read by millions. In this captivating biography, Holtz chronicles Rose's life from childhood, to travels abroad that began at age seventeen, and finally back home to Missouri in her mid-thirties where she would fine tune her mother's writing. Holtz does not write to expose Laura as a fraud, but instead "The Ghost in the Little House" explains that Laura's books were more of a collaborative effort than anyone knew.
