The Legacy of Laura Ingalls Wilder DVD Review

Perhaps you are like me and you grew up watching Little House on the Prairie every Monday night at 8:00 pm.  Or, maybe you are more like my oldest daughter that devoured every book in the Little House series reading them again and again.  I didn't actually read the books until I was an adult.  They are timeless and wonderful. Emma, my 10 year old is just discovering these books for herself and and therefore I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review Little House on the Prairie: The Legacy of Laura Ingalls Wilder DVD from Dean Butler of Legacy Documentaries.

This 55 minute long documentary, narrated  and directed by Dean Butler (the actor that played Almanzo in the TV series) details the life of the real Laura Ingalls Wilder. The documentary chronicles not only the childhood but also the adult life of Laura and her family.  I learned so many things about the Ingalls and Wilder families that I didn't know before.  This is a very interesting documentary that the whole family will enjoy (ours did).  It is touching, informative and a must see for anyone even remotely interested in Laura Ingalls Wilder. You will learn how the stories of the Little House on the Prairie came to be.

Bonus features include the Director's Diary with Dean Butler explaining some of the behind the scenes details of making this documentary, and includes trailers of Almanzo Wilder: Life Before Laura DVD and Pa's Fiddle.

Having grown up watching the series on TV, I found it interesting that Dean Butler pronounces Almanzo differently than they did on TV.  It turns out, it is supposed to be pronounced Al-man-zo (like the word man)....hence the nickname, it all makes sense. :)  Read more about that here.

Highly Recommended!

Watch the trailer.
