Back when I was in grad school, I went through a huge Little House phase. And I read a bunch of Rose Wilder Lane's books which struck me as being essentially a case of the child taking the parent's stories and turning them into their own story. (Her most famous book was "Let the Hurricane Roar," which in essence is just like Little House saga condensced into a single volume.) I find it more interesting that despite the fact that Rose was well known in her day, her mother is the one that people still remember now. (Except, perhaps, the kids who read the extended Little House series.)

One thing I always found weird about The First Four Years was adjusting to Almanzo being called Manly. Just seemed like such a change!
