This little book is Kelly Kathleen Ferguson’s delightful response to this question: If you could meet ANYone, past or present, who would you meet and why? Ferguson’s answer: Laura Ingalls Wilder. And while My Life As Laura is witty, sharply penned, and thoughtful, taking a road trip through the prairie with Ferguson, who is both strong and vulnerable at once, was the best part of all. The book’s one downfall is that it is too short! (Shamefully) having never met Laura Ingalls Wilder myself, My Life As Laura has made seek the Little House books for myself. I hope that Ferguson continues to write and create her own little boxed set for the rest of us to enjoy. I want more!
