The Homesteader

If you didn't get your copy of The Homesteader in this week's mail, you're missing out on a great source of "Little House" news!

Most of the Laura Ingalls Wilder homesites have their own newsletters, all of which we also recommend and encourage you to check out on their individual websites, but The Homesteader is the only Laura newsletter which encompasses all things Laura at all the homesites and beyond.

Published twice a year by editor Sandra Hume, The Homesteader brings fresh perspectives on "Little House" news right to your door. Check them out here: http://www.homesteadernewsletter.com/

In the latest issue, for example, you'll find detailed interviews with Kevin Massey and Kara Lindsay, the stars of the Little House on the Prairie musical; thorough reviews of Dean Butler's documentary Almanzo Wilder: Life Before Laura and Anita Clair Fellman's book Little House, Long Shadow; updated information on the lawsuit filed by Friendly Family Productions against the Little House on the Prairie museum; and more!

And if you've been missing out all these years on this great resource, don't worry -- all back issues can be still be ordered, and you can have a veritable feast of Laura information at your fingertips!

Thanks, Sandra and contributors to The Homesteader, for all your work in giving Laura fans a quality publication that both educates and entertains.

Beyond Little House

We are pleased to announce the launch of a brand new resource for Laura Ingalls Wilder fans: Beyond Little House.

We here at Frontier Girl have teamed with three other Laura Ingalls Wilder/Rose Wilder Lane experts to create this blog, with the hope of providing a "one-stop shop" for Little House readers who are searching to "go beyond" what the Little House books have to offer, and learn more about the people and places of the Little House books, or about the author herself.

This is very much a work-in-progress, but we hope you will like what we've put together so far. Go take a look and let us know what you think!!
