Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote her first book, LITTLE HOUSE IN THE BIG WOODS, at the age of 65. This title began the nine-book "Little House" series, which was a combination of autobiography, storytelling, and American history. More than just the story of one person's life, the series is an account of the settling of the American frontier. All the books in the series were edited by Wilder's only child, a daughter named Rose Wilder Lane. In 1954, as a testament to Laura Ingalls Wilder's contribution to the world of children's literature, the American Library Association created the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award to recognize creators of children's books whose body of work represents a significant contribution to the field of children's literature. Naturally, she was the first to be honored with this award. Her legions of fans still make pilgrimages to the settings of her books and her former homes, all of which are preserved or memorialized in her honor.
