Description

Author Wendy McClure is on a quest to find the world of beloved “Little House on the Prairie” author, Laura Ingalls Wilder – a fantastic realm of fiction history and the places she’s never been to, yet somehow knows by heart. She traces the pioneer journey of the Ingalls family – looking for the Big Woods among the medium trees in Wisconsin, wading in Plum Creek, and enduring a prairie hailstorm in South Dakota. Whether she’s churning butter in her apartment or sitting in a replica log cabin, McClure is always in pursuit of “the Laura experience.” The result is an incredibly funny first-person account of obsessive reading, and a story about what happens when we reconnect with our childhood touchstones and find that our old love has only deepened.
