The book itself is a softcover, almost-pamphlet/booklet issued by the site that maintains the Ingalls family DeSmet homestead, but DON'T let that put you off. It's good quality, printed with a glossy cover & the printing is fine. The author is a historian of the Ingalls/Wilder family and obviously has a great deal of respect and admiration for the families. A well-written history of EJ's life, with photographs of her I'd never seen -- what a pretty woman, which you would never know from the terrible TV series or from Laura's books.

I think what I appreciated most about this little biography is that it saves EJ's well-lived life from oblivion, and corrects a great wrong done to her by her famous sister-in-law's portrayal.

love anything about the Wilder family

This is a wonderful book about a strong pioneer women. She was also the school teacher and eventual sister in law to writer Laura Ingalls Wilder.
These are Eliza Jane's own words edited by historian of the Ingalls/ Wilders family William Anderson. When you miss out on this book, you are truly missing something.Eliza Jane was truly a liberated woman before women even thought of it. She also greatly influenced Laura's daughter Rose Wilder Lane. Rose lived with her through the last 2 years of high school since she could graduate to the 12th grade in Louisiana where Eliza lived. Very very different from any misconceptions you may have of her.

Very interesting book.

If you are interested in more info that the Little House Books give regarding Almanzo's sister Eliza Jane, you will find this book very interesting. It even has, written in her own words, the struggle she went through trying to make it as a single woman in the West. I also liked it because it goes beyond her life in the west and tells what happened to her afterward. If you are a Little House fan, you need this book.
I now feel like the TV series version of Little House on the Prairie completely lied about Eliza Jane Wilder. She was a beautiful woman, as you can see from photos in the book, yet she was portrayed as homely. This makes no sense.

The book is a captivating portrait of a headstrong young woman determined to eke out a hardscrabble existence as a solo female homesteader - which almost killed her more than once. She also worked as a schoolteacher while she tended her claim and suffered indignation with that snotty Laura Ingalls in her classroom.

You can't go wrong reading this book. However, it certainly leaves you wishing that Eliza Jane had been represented as the headstrong, beautiful woman she truly was. I literally read the book from cover to cover at the Pomona Library, which sure has changed a great deal since I was a child, but still has a ramshackle "Little House On The Prairie" exhibit.
