Loving Laura

In honor of Laura Ingalls Wilder's birthday and Google featuring her on their website, I thought I'd feature some Laura related items at the Minnesota Historical Society







1971 creation by 3rd graders from Shaw School in Austin, Minnesota.  Following the journey of the Ingalls in On the Banks of Plum Creek







'Grangers vs Grasshoppers' or 'the irrepressible conflict' from about 1880.  The grasshopper plagues are a very important part of the Laura Ingalls Wilder book On the Banks of Plum Creek










1941 edition of Little Town on the Prairie.  
I love this cover!















Depiction of catching young grasshoppers during the Minnesota grasshopper plagues of 1888,
