Little House on the Prairie series

The Little House on the Prairie series, also called the Frontier Girl or Pioneer Girl series, was written by Laura Ingalls Wilder about her childhood in a pioneer family. The most well-known of the books is Little House on the Prairie. The books are generally classified as historical fiction rather than autobiography.

The version of the books currently in print was illustrated by Garth Williams[?].

There are now spinoff books based on some of Wilder's female relations, including her mother, Caroline Lake Quiner Ingalls, and her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane.

The books also formed the basis of a television series, called Little House on the Prairie, starring Michael Landon[?].
