Review: Prairie Fires

Prairie Fires: The American Dreams of Laura Ingalls Wilder by Caroline Fraser
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A wonderful read! I had no idea that Laura and her daughter had such a complex, fraught relationship. I also had a very patchy grasp of the history of the period – this adroitly combines interesting social history with fascinating biographical studies of Laura Ingalls Wilder and Rose Wilder Lane. Extensively researched and beautifully written, this a great read even if you aren’t a Little House fan.
