The fictional Laura was different from the real Laura. The books are certainly different from the TV series. I don't recall any episodes in the TV series about the long winter, but it makes me wonder what was it really like? Not only for her and her family, but the other settlers, the Native Americans and the soldiers.

You might check out the non-fiction title Prairie Fires: The American Dreams of Laura Ingalls Wilder, which had some excellent accounts of the early winters she suffered as a child.
