Actress Melissa Gilbert has released a memoir, PRAIRIE TALE.
Most young girls growing up in the '70s, myself included, watched Gilbert every week on LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE.
A few days ago I discussed some of her TV-movies, including 1979's THE MIRACLE WORKER, just released on DVD.
I read a brief magazine excerpt from the book today. Like far too many child actors, Gilbert seems to have had a fairly rough time of it over the years, but she appears to be happy today in a 14-year marriage to actor Bruce Boxleitner, with an upcoming tour scheduled of the musical LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE, in which she plays Ma Ingalls.
