Caroline Fraser

Sunday, October 14, 3:00 p.m.

Caroline Fraser's Pulitzer Prize-winning historical biography Prairie Fires: The American Dreams of Laura Ingalls Wilder masterfully fills in the gaps of what has previously been known about Wilder's life. Fraser draws on unpublished manuscripts, letters, diaries, and land and financial records to chronicle Wilder's story of relentless struggle, rootlessness, and poverty, as well as her tumultuous relationship with her journalist daughter, Rose Wilder Lane. Wilder's real life was much harder than what she portrayed in the Little House on the Prairie series, and her success remains one of the most astonishing rags-to-riches episodes in American letters.
