William Anderson, author of The Selected Letters of Laura Ingalls Wilder: "Just when aficionados of the Little House Books feel that there are no fresh sources on the topic forthcoming, a book like Marie Tschopp's comes along. Mary Ingalls--The College Years is an important, twofold publication. It details Mary's life as a student and illuminates the heroic attempts to enhance education of blind students of her era."
Teresa Lynn, author of Little Lodges on the Prairie: "Though short and easy to read, this book is not fluff – it’s well written and packed with information. This is the first work to look in detail at what Mary Ingalls’ life was like at the blind school, and there are facts presented that have not been publicly available before. I’m a long-time scholar of Laura Ingalls Wilder and her family, but learned several things from this treatise. (Even Bill Anderson said he learned things from it!) Highly recommended."
Amazon Reviewer: "A short, but comprehensive history of not only Mary Ingalls and her time at the Iowa College for the Blind, but also a nice history of the school as well. I read the book practically in one sitting because I couldn't put it down. I bought the book when it came up in a search for another book about Laura. I am a huge Ingalls fan, and I have always wanted to know more about Mary and her time at the Iowa College for the Blind. This book didn't disappoint! You can tell that Marie Tschopp put a lot of research into this book, and writes with a passion.I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to better know the life of Laura's older sister, and her time at the blind school!"
