Transcript of The Story of Laura Ingalls Wilder, Pioneer Girl By Megan Stine

Laura Ingalls Wilder, A Pioneer Girl Laura was born on February 2, 1867. Laura moved nine times in her life. The first move she made was one year after she was born. They moved westward on a wagon. At the age of four she moves back to the little house in the Big Woods. Three years later, they once again moved westward. They stopped on the banks on Plum Creek which is on the outside of Walnut Grove, Minnesota. One strange day, tons of grasshoppers flew in and started to eat. They ate and ate and ate. Then after they ate all of the crops, they left. They called it the grasshopper plague. When food and fuel run out, they almost starved. A man named Almanzo Wilder saved the town by searching for wheat in a snowstorm. Three years later when Laura was 18, she married Almanzo, who was 28, ten years older than her. Later she had a daughter named Rose. Rose grew up to be a writer and she got married, but was too busy for a husbad and divorced him.
