    Drawing on unpublished manuscripts, letters, diaries and public records, Caroline Fraser uncovers the real-life story of Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of the Little House on the Prairie books. Wilder (1867–1957) had a life full of drama and adversity. Settling on the American frontier amid land-rush speculation, Laura and her family endured Biblical tribulations of locusts and drought, poverty and want, before she left at the age of 18 to be married. This is where the books end, but Prairie Fires follows Laura in the decades that followed, when she endured personal tragedies, crisscrossed the country and eventually, aged 60, wrote a best-selling and much-loved series of novels in which she recast her extraordinarily difficult childhood as a triumph of the pioneering spirit.
