Little House on the Prairie: The True Story

For some reason, I had a view into what really went on in the Ingalls family - Laura Ingalls Wilder completely fictionalized most of the books because sometime after On the Banks of Plum Creek, the family cooked and ate Mary and one of the babies. Laura couldn't deal with this, so she went on with the stories, having Mary go blind, &c.

Also, the dream was incredibly disjointed in time. Almanzo Wilder ended up fighting in World War I (I think...) and came home shellshocked. He spent most of his days staring at the ocean - oh, yes, they ended up living in a little cabin on the beach. They had two daughters, one of whom was named Sheeney and was a very modern-day photographer.

Yes, I realize I need to stop smoking crack before bedtime.
