A Little House Traveler: Writings from Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Journeys Across America is a collection of early writings by Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of the Little House series of novels.[1] It consists of three parts: On the Way Home, a diary originally published in 1962; West from Home, a collection of letters from Wilder to her husband Almanzo Wilder written in 1915 and published in 1974; and The Road Back, a previously unpublished diary.[2]

The Road Back is Laura Ingalls Wilder's journal written during her first car trip from Mansfield, Missouri to DeSmet, South Dakota and the Black Hills, with her husband Almanzo in 1931, to visit the family and collect materials for Laura's soon-to-be-published Little House on the Prairie books.
