The TV series was based on the semi-autobiographical children's books by author Laura Ingalls Wilder, who was inspired by her childhood in a pioneer family on the 19th-century American frontier. 

In addition to the TV series, the books also inspired a 1999 miniseries about Wilder's life and a musical adaptation.
