A MEMORABLE PLACE Where dreams are made By Pamela Grebow Ehrenberg SPECIAL TO THE SUN In 1980, I used $17 of carefully hoarded birthday money to buy a complete set of Little House on the Prairie paperbacks in a yellow cardboard case. I wrote my name in the designated spot and began rereading the books I had already started to memorize from checking them out so often from the library. That year, Monday night bedtime was extended so I could watch the Little House on the Prairie TV show.

For those who love Laura Ingalls Wilder Countless women over the years grew up with the childhood memories of someone else stored in their heads: those of Laura Ingalls Wilder. Her books about Midwest pioneer life in the 19th century kept us company, inspired us, entertained us and gave us fodder for fantasies. And they are still cherished by girls everywhere today. On Saturday, actress Julia Maxham will appear dressed as the author at the Hereford Branch Library and talk about Laura's life on the prairie.

Return to `Little House' Seventy years ago at the urging of her daughter Rose, Laura Ingalls Wilder began to write down the stories of her pioneer childhood that she'd often shared when Rose was just a girl. Two years later, in 1932, the first of the seven books chronicling Wilder's life hit the shelves with the title "Little House in the Big Woods." In it, a 4- and then 5-year-old Laura showed readers the way of life on the prairie, from panther attacks to maple-tree sapping. Many of us grew up right alongside her, with her books tucked in our knapsacks and her adventures stored in our hearts.

When it comes to Laura Ingalls Wilder, author Stephen W. Hines isn't embarrassed to wear his heart on his sleeve.One of the big pleasures of his childhood, the 40-something Wilder fan notes, was reading "Little House on the Prairie" and all of the other Wilder books about pioneer life -- eight or 10 times each.Imagine Mr. Hines' surprise, then, to discover as a newlywed that his bride (a librarian, yet!) had never read a Wilder book in her life. Even worse, she had formed her only impressions of the pioneering Ingalls family from the popular TV series based on the "Little House" saga, starring telegenic Michael Landon as family patriarch Charles "Pa" Ingalls.
