Confessions Of A Prairie Bitch by Alison Arngrim

Confessions Of A Prairie Bitch

Yep, I was that girl.  The one that religiously watched Little House on the Prairie faithfully each week, not missing a single episode.  I had read all the books, even some non-fiction accounts that offered up information on the Ingalls family that were not included in Laura Ingalls Wilder’s original series.

A few years ago, I read Melissa Gilbert’s non-fiction account of her days on the set of the television series, and a Goodreads friend (thanks Kressel!) recommended I read Alison Arngrim’s book.

Seriously, anyone looking for a biography like this one wants information on the cast and filming of the television series, and Arngrim definitely delivers.  She is down to earth, incredibly funny, and presents a well-written account of her days “on the Prairie.”  But there is more: from her own sexual abuse (which she doesn’t present as a sob story), to her close friendship from her on-set Little House husband, Steve Tracy, Arngrim manages to pen a highly entertaining and moving autobiography that offers healing and a level of emotional maturity rarely seen in children that grow up in the spotlight.  I loved this book, and I thought Alison Arngrim was pretty cool, too.
