Title: Confessions of a Prairie Bitch
Author: Alison Arngrim
I had been called in when the concept of the show was first being discussed. I remember wearing my frilly, girly yellow dress, the one I deemed nauseating and only to be worn for special occasions or at gunpoint. I was not asked to read any lines. It was a bizarre meeting where producer Ed Friendly showed me a set of Little House books and asked ominously, “Do you know what these are?”
I figured I didn’t get the job, as I had not read the Little House books and had actually never heard of Laura Ingalls Wilder until that day.
Hard to believe a young girl could grow up without reading Little House!
