The introduction of this edition includes explanations on the conversations and stress that was going on between the two families as they attempted to get the work published. The citations are weighty and long, which can make reading a bit tedious if the reader wants to learn all of the information. Perhaps the most interesting part for me was learning how Wilder shifted experiences from when they took place in her life to different parts of her novels to create a more satisfying rhythm for storytelling.
For anybody who enjoys the "Little House" series, I would highly recommend reading this annotated autobiography to learn more about the real life story of the Pioneer Girl Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Although much of the material Isenberg covers are pieces of history I recall in school, there are many more pieces of insight that we did not explore in my early schooling. The in-depth look at how the Founding Fathers looked upon the average citizen still influences our own way of thinking in a disturbing manner even today. This book serves as a good reminder of how we should all remain aware of our own economic status and how it effects not only our lives, but our views on others and how we may treat them.

In the final chapter Sticks and Stones prove to be the most powerful weapon of all, despite all the talents in the gang.
The corny humor of the television show translates well into comic format. Those who enjoy the show will love reading further adventures of Sonic and his gang.
