I read Prairie Tale by Melissa Gilbert a long time ago. And, it's a very good book . She talks about her drug addiction to wine and cocaine and how she went to rehab to get clean. I highly recommend this book.

This book is very engaging! I really enjoyed it. Melissa talks about her life and gives details. She was friends with everyone back in the day. She names names! She is very honest about her alcoholism. It's sad though that at the time she ends the book she is still married to Bruce Boxleitner. She has since divorced, remarried, and wants to enter into politics. She needs to write a Part 2 biography! I recommend this book.

Drinking? Illegal drugs? Plastic surgery? Everything I never knew and never would have *guessed* about the woman who play Laura Ingalls on Little House on the Prairie. If you loved the show, this book is a *must* read. Interesting, entertaining and eye opening. Great!
