Out of all the Little House autobiographies I read, I liked Alison's the best. She wrote it like it was and added humor along the way. There were a few times my kids asked me what I was chuckling about as I read the book. I grew up hating Nellie but I admire Alison and how she used her influence as Nellie to do good for children through her activism (who would have thought after the hell Nellie put Laura through! :)) Alison's book is a great read.
