A New York Times Book Review 10 Best of 2017

Fans of Little House on the Prairie believe they know Laura Ingalls, but the full saga of her life has never been told. Now Caroline Fraser, editor of the Library of America’s Little House series, masterfully fills in the gaps. Spanning nearly a century of change from the Indian Wars to the Dust Bowl, Prairie Fires provides a unique perspective on American history and the complex woman whose stories grip us to this day.
