Prairie Fires: The American Dreams of Laura Ingalls Wilder -- Caroline Fraser

Staff Pick

Many of us have read Laura Ingalls Wilder books as children or watched the wildly popular TV show in the 1970s but I don’t think many of us fully know the real story behind the life of Wilder, her parents, Caroline and Charles, her siblings, Mary, Carrie and Grace, and most especially her only child, Rose.  It’s a story spanning so much American history including the prairie homestead farmers being thwarted by grasshoppers, blizzards, fires, disease and crippling debt again and again. Caroline Fraser’s epic story of the life and autobiographical stories of Laura Ingalls Wilder deserves high praise.
