Where Little House on the Prairie took place, and where Carrie Ingalls was born.
This book is perhaps the best known, due to the television show of the same name. Laura wrote about life outside Independence, Kansas and the adventures she and her family had here, before they were forced to move. In real life, Laura’s family returned to the Big Woods in Pepin, Wisconsin before they eventually moved to Walnut Grove, Minnesota, and the site of On the Banks of Plum Creek.
