<p><b>WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE</b><br /><b>WINNER OF THE NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD </b><br /><b>ONE OF THE <i>NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW</i>'S 10 BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR</b><br /><b></b><br /><b>The first comprehensive historical biography of Laura Ingalls Wilder, the beloved author of the <i>Little House on the Prairie</i> books</b></p><p>Millions of readers of <i>Little House on the Prairie</i> believe they know Laura Ingalls鈥攖he 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 Now, drawing on unpublished manuscripts, letters, diaries, and land and financial records, Caroline Fraser鈥攖he editor of the Library of America edition of the Little House series鈥攎asterfully fills in the gaps in Wilder鈥檚 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.</p><p>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鈥檚 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鈥檚 books, recasting her hardscrabble childhood as a celebratory vision of homesteading鈥攁nd achieving fame and fortune in the process, in one of the most astonishing rags-to-riches episodes in American letters.</p><p>Spanning nearly a century of epochal change, from the Indian Wars to the Dust Bowl, Wilder鈥檚 dramatic life provides a unique perspective on American history and our national mythology of self-reliance. With fresh insights and new discoveries, <i>Prairie Fires</i> reveals the complex woman whose classic stories grip us to this day.</p>

<p>Movable books are an innovative area of children鈥檚 publishing. Commonly equated with spectacular pop-ups, movable books have a little-known history as interactive, narrative media.<i> </i>Since they are hybrid artifacts consisting of words, images and movable components, they cross the borders between story, toy, and game.<i> Interactive Books</i> is a historical and comparative study of early movable books in relation to the children who engage with them. </p><br /><p></p><br /><p>Jacqueline Reid-Walsh focuses on the period movable books became connected with children from the mid-17th to the early-19th centuries. In particular, she examines turn-up books, paper doll books, and related hybrid experiments like toy theaters and <i>paignion</i> (or domestic play set) produced between 1650 and 1830. Despite being popular in their own time, these artifacts are little known today. This study draws attention to a gap in our knowledge of children鈥檚 print culture by showing how these artifacts are important in their own right. </p><br /><p></p><br /><p>Reid-Walsh combines archival research with children鈥檚 literature studies, book history, and juvenilia studies. By examining commercially produced and homemade examples, she explores the interrelations among children, interactive media, and historical participatory culture. By drawing on both Enlightenment thinkers and contemporary digital media theorists <i>Interactive Books</i> enables us to think critically about children鈥檚 media texts paper and digital, past and present.</p>
