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.

Read this book to get the scoop on good stuff!
I really loved the easy way this read - there was not a lot of jumping around in time or flashbacks. It's all mostly chronologically told from her childhood through her current life.
Of course most will pick this book up to read more about the behind the scenes stories from Little House On the Prairie as this is the first memoir from one of the adults points of views. It's definitely worth it for that but she doesn't dig TOO deep into it (for that, head over and pick up Alison Arngrim's book on that, so so so good). She does devote a little bit of time though and what's nice is you get to hear about the actors and actresses before and after the show as well and how it's been like with the resurgence of all of the fan events.
Charlotte's life has been utterly fascinating and inspiring and I am so glad that I happened upon this memoir!
