Written by Laura and published posthumously in 1974, and is a collection of letters sent by Laura to her husband Almanzo Wilder in 1915. It was edited by Roger MacBride, the literary executor of their daughter Rose Wilder Lane. Laura had been sent to San Francisco to write about the 1915 World's Fair where she also visited Rose, who lived in that city when she was 48 years old and Rose 28.
"It is like a fairyland." So Laura Ingalls Wilder described her 1915 voyage to San Francisco to visit her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane. Laura's husband, Almanzo, was unable to leave their Missouri farm and it is her faithful letters home, vividly describing every detail of her journey, that have been gathered here.
