This book is a trip diary written by Laura Ingalls Wilder, sandwiched between two story chapters written by Laura’s daughter, Rose Wilder Lane. It is a Sunday drive of a book that pleasantly but somewhat monotonously updates us on the Little House family.

Going by this book alone, it is a big stretch to believe that Laura wrote the Little House books and no stretch at all to believe they were actually the work of her daughter, Rose.
