WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE WINNER OF THE NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD ONE OF THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW'S 10 BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR The first comprehensive historical biography of Laura Ingalls Wilder, the beloved author of the Little House on the Prairie books Millions of readers of Little House on the Prairie believe they know Laura Ingalls—the pioneer girl who survived blizzards and near-starvation on the Great Plains, and the woman who wrote the famous autobiographical books. But the true saga of her life has never been fully told. Now, drawing on unpublished manuscripts, letters, diaries, and land and financial records, Caroline Fraser—the editor of the Library of America edition of the Little House series—masterfully fills in the gaps in Wilder’s biography. Revealing the grown-up story behind the most influential childhood epic of pioneer life, she also chronicles Wilder's tumultuous relationship with her journalist daughter, Rose Wilder Lane, setting the record straight regarding charges of ghostwriting that have swirled around the books. The Little House books, for all the hardships they describe, are paeans to the pioneer spirit, portraying it as triumphant against all odds. But Wilder’s real life was harder and grittier than that, a story of relentless struggle, rootlessness, and poverty. It was only in her sixties, after losing nearly everything in the Great Depression, that she turned to children’s books, recasting her hardscrabble childhood as a celebratory vision of homesteading—and achieving fame and fortune in the process, in one of the most astonishing rags-to-riches episodes in American letters. Spanning nearly a century of epochal change, from the Indian Wars to the Dust Bowl, Wilder’s dramatic life provides a unique perspective on American history and our national mythology of self-reliance. With fresh insights and new discoveries, Prairie Fires reveals the complex woman whose classic stories grip us to this day.

Book Description :

This collection bundles all three titles from beloved author Catherine Palmer’s charming Town Called Hope series into one volume for a great value! #1 Prairie Rose Hope and love blossom on the untamed prairie as a young woman searching for a place to call home happens upon a Kansas homestead during the 1860s . . . A Town Called Hope, the inspiring series set in post–Civil War Kansas, is the creation of best-selling romance writer Catherine Palmer. In the fast-paced Prairie Rose, impulsive nineteen-year-old Rosie Mills takes a job caring for the young son of widowed homesteader Seth Hunter in order to escape the orphanage in which she was raised. Rosie’s naive view of love and her understanding of what it means to have a Father in heaven are quickly put to the test. Afraid of being wounded again, Seth struggles to freely open his heart—to his hurting son, to a woman’s love, and to a Father who will not abandon him. Together Rosie and Seth must face the harsh uncertainties of prairie life—and the one man who threatens to destroy their happiness. Prairie Rose launches a series sure to satisfy readers who expect solid biblical values in a wholesome, exhilarating romance. #2 Prairie Fire 1998 HOLT Medallion finalist! / 1998 finalist for Romantic Times Reviewers Choice! The fictional town of Hope discovers the importance of forgiveness, overcoming prejudice, and the dangers of keeping unhealthy family secrets. Jack Cornwall lost everything during the Civil War, so when his beloved nephew Chipper is reclaimed by his father, Cornwall vows revenge on the man who took away his last link with the past. Arriving in the town of Hope, Jack finds Chipper happy in his new family. Caitrin Murphy, a cheerful Irish immigrant, helps him realizes that taking Chipper away would be cruel. Unfortunately, few townspeople trust Jack, and even Caitrin is reluctant to encourage their romance because of Jack’s lack of faith. Jack soon realizes that serious changes are needed before he can be truly happy. #3 Prairie Storm After a diphtheria epidemic takes the lives of both her husband and daughter, Lily Nolan continues her work in a traveling medicine show. When the troupe arrives in the small town of Hope, KS, in 1866, Lily encounters Elijah Book, a preacher caring for an orphaned baby, and agrees to look after the child. Although attracted to the kindly Elijah, Lily distrusts him because of the childhood abuse she suffered at the hands of her preacher father. Prairie Storm, by award-winning author Catherine Palmer, is the third book in the series A Town Called Hope. Continuing the saga of the Kansas town, Palmer teaches readers that God’s wonderful plan for each of us includes peace and healing, even amidst the storms of life. A must-have for all Palmer fans as well as for anyone whose faith has been challenged by adversity.

Book Description :

Taking a new approach to illustrating the past, this fictional recollection finds history professor Paul Wessner reminiscing about the On-to-Ottawa Trek and the 1935 Regina Riot, with the usual Tuesday night BJ’s Bar and Q Club patrons as his audience. Due to local interest in his research, he invites Doc Savage and Matt Shaw, leaders on the Trek, to deliver their own firsthand accounts of the events. The narratives broaden to the evolution of the Social Credit and CCF prairie fires and their lasting legacies in Canada, and police tactics of the Great Depression are compared to the repression of dissent at the Battle of Seattle and the Quebec Summit of the Americas. Soon Paul’s weekly pub colleagues end up on their own odysseys, discovering that they are actually a part of the narratives that are shared on Tuesday nights, and Paul’s own journey pulls everyone into the middle of a living, breathing oral history.
