- Rose edited the book
- Wilder submitted it to various publishers under the name Laura Ingalls Wilder.
- no one was interested Refusing to become discouraged, Wilder changed some things. The "I" in her stories became "Laura," and the focus moved from the story of one little girl to the story of an entire family's experiences on the new frontier. Wilder also decided to direct her writing at children, mostly. She did, however, sometimes streamline events. She would create or omitted others details in her life entirely (such as the birth and death of her brother), and created happier endings. She wrote about real people and things that had actually happened with just a little differences here and there. Spirituality The Ingalls girls were given a religious upbringing.
In their early years, prior to moving to Walnut Grove, it doesn’t seem that going to church was part of the Ingalls’ lives due to distance, but the family still observed Sunday as a day of rest
The girls received religious instruction from Ma and Pa because they are familiar with Bible stories and have memorized Scripture verses even before attending church or Sunday School. - got diphtheria, a terrible disease that causes breathing problems, which left him partially paralyzed. The house that Laura's husband built, burned down. They live in Mansfield for the rest of their lives. - Rose Wilder Lane became a journalist, travel writer, novelist, and political theorist. She is claimed to be one of the founders of the American libertarian movement.
