West From Home", is a collection of letters that Larua Ingalls Wilder wrote to husband, Almanzo, from San Fransisco in 1915 while she was there visiting her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane. Edited by Roger Lea MacBride, this book chronicles her travels through California and her visit to the Worlds' Fair.
Found in a cardboard box the editor found these among her daughter Rose's possessions in 1968. She wrote these letters to "Manly", her husband because they could not both go to San Francisco to stay with Rose as the farm could not be left for extended periods. Thus Laura was "Manlys eyes" and went into great detail describing the city, the Panama Pacific International Exhibition (as the Worlds' Fair of 1915 was known).
The book also contains 24 black and white glossy photos of Laura and the amazing things she saw in San Fransisco.
The book has illustrated board covers and is in very good vintage condition. The inside front and back covers have some foxing which I believe is from the non-archival glue used. The pages are otherwise clean and the binding is tight.
A fun piece of history from an author we've all come to adore.
