Laura Ingalls Wilder’s newly-published autobiography reveals the true stories of her pioneering life and re-introduces readers to the woman who defined the pioneer experience for millions of readers around the world. Through her recollections, Wilder details the Ingalls family’s journey from Kansas, Missouri, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, back to Minnesota, and on to Dakota Territory during sixteen years of travels, unforgettable stories, and the everyday people who became immortal through her fiction. Using additional manuscripts, diaries, maps, and letters, Pioneer Girl adds depth to Wilder’s work through historical context and the exploration of her growth as a writer.
This month's Book Club will be led by Dr. Young-ok An and Dr. Mary Knatterud.
