A Prairie Girl’s Faith


I love Little House on the Prairie themed things. I love the books and the TV shows. I love the Laura Ingalls Wilder museums and the cute gifts I have gotten from their gift shops. So it is no surprise that I also loved the book A Prairie Girl’s Faith: The Spiritual Legacy of Laura Ingalls Wilder by Stephen H. Hines.

What I sometimes like about the Little House brand are its superficial elements. I like the quaint images of log cabins and pioneer living – even though, realistically, Laura Ingalls Wilder’s pioneer life was often a harsh one. Part of what makes the book A Prairie Girls’ Faith wonderful is that it deeply explores Wilder’s Christian faith. There is certainly nothing superficial about this book, and it is both an informative and heartwarming read.
