Laura Ingalls Wilder DVDs (Legacy Documentaries Review)

 photo legacydocumentaries_zps0971e3df.jpgLegacy Documetaries has a mission to “create and deliver content so compelling it entertains, informs, and shapes the lives of our viewers.” The executive producer behind the documentaries is Dean Butler who is, perhaps, best known for playing the role of Almanzo Wilder in the hit television series Little House on the Prairie. Among other projects he’s worked on, two of note are Almanzo Wilder: Life Before Laura DVD, and Little House on the Prairie: The Legacy of Laura Ingalls Wilder DVD. Members of our review team were sent one of of these two documentaries to watch and review.

Almanzo Wilder: Life Before Laura goes beyond what we know of Almanzo through Laura’s writings and explores his early life through original footage and re-creations taken at the Wilder Homestead in northern New York State. This DVD documentary is $21.95 plus shipping.

Little House on the Prairie: The Legacy of Laura Ingalls Wilder gives the untold story of the life of Laura Ingalls Wilder from a fictional and historical perspective. Using the Little House on the Prairie books, dramatic reenactments, authentic photographs and more, the story of Laura’s life and legacy is filled out in a way we don’t get to see in 150 pages of paperback enjoyment. This DVD documentary is $24.95 plus shipping.

  1. […] The DVD sells for $21.95 and comes with a 30 day no questions asked, money back guarantee so if you’re not completely satisfied you can return it.  Although it’s my opinion that you’ll want to add it to and keep it for your collection because this will add so much living history to the school day or for your enjoyment after reading Farmer Boy.  There was a little history about Laura’s writing of her beloved series so she’s not completely left out of this documentary but Legacy Documentaries does have other DVDs as well so be sure to check out the other reviews on the Schoolhouse Review Crew blog.

  2. […] also has 2 other films, besides Almanzo Wilder.  Little House on the Prairie: the Legacy of Laura Ingalls Wilder, and Pa’s Fiddle (DVD): The Music of America (Homage to Laura Ingalls Wilder and her Father).  We will be working our way through the first few Little House books as soon as we finish the last couple of chapters from Farmer Boy, an I plan on ordering the Laura Ingalls Wilder DVD to supplement those books.   I am all excited to hit the road and visit some of these Little House sites that we drive by every year!  Some of the crew watched and reviewed the DVD about Laura; if you are interested in learning more about that film, you can find the reviews here.
