Music of Little House on the Prairie

Laura Ingalls Wilder's autobiographical novels described pioneer life in late Nineteenth Century Wisconsin, Iowa, and Kansas. She never forgot the songs they sang or the music "Pa" played on his violin (fiddle).  Many of the tunes were well-known to fiddlers and are still played today. Ball State Libraries' Music Collection and Educational Resources Collections have all the materials you need to immerse yourself in the stories and music of the books.
