I grew up watching Little House with my mum on the weekends, along with re-runs of Land of the Giants and Prisoner: Cell Block H. And I still re-watch Little House to this day. I've bought the various biographies of the child stars, but this is the first biography from the adult star - a fact that Charlotte also mentions during her tale. (Other biographies include: Prairie Tale,The Way I See it,Confessions of a Prairie Bitch,Diary of a Stage Mother's Daughter: A Memoir and Lessons from the Prairie.)
It was surprising to see how much else Charlotte has starred in. I've seen her in an episode of The Waltons, and briefly caught a glimpse of her starring opposite Elvis in Speedway. I had no idea that she'd starred in Eraserhead,Twin Peaks (and the reboot, which gets briefly touched upon towards the end) and Tremors, to name but a few.
It was eye opening to hear about her marriages and her dalliances with some of her more famous male co-stars and others. She has a habit of bringing up a first name, and then dropping in the more famous surnames at the end of that particular story (Costner and Murray famously appear.)
For me, reading about Little House was the main point for me, as that's the show I know most about. It was interesting to hear about the tales of which female actors were wearing wigs and which male actor famously didn't wear underwear!
I really enjoyed this and it's piqued my interest into re-reading the other biographies and looking forward to some others on the horizon - hopefully.
