Little House on the Prairie

Jim Drydon reports on the question of who should benefit from the royalties of the Little House on the Prairie books, written by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Wilder made a library in her hometown of Mansfield, Missouri the beneficiary, upon her daughter's death. But a beneficiary of her daughter claimed the copyrights to books, and has kept most of the royalties.
