Land of Laura Ingalls Wilder

Debi says...

I was a very good girl and sat properly at my desk in a one room schoolhouse.

I explored Laura Ingalls Wilder's house- built by Pa, of course,  and the prairie lands where they homesteaded. I felt powerful driving a team of horses that pulled a covered wagon over prairie grass and beside cornfields.

De Smet, the Little Town on the Prairie,  remains a small town (population 1,200) that cherishes the memory of the Ingalls, their most famous family as well as the Wilder's (Laura married Almanzo Wilder).

What a warm and welcoming place to visit...more to come.
