Prairie Fires: The American Dreams of Laura Ingalls Wilder (Large Print / Paperback)
Just won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography! I've read everything by and about Laura Ingalls Wilder and I still found this fascinating. It describes not only her life and that of her family; but put it into the historical context. Amazing stories, such as the 1,800 mile-long cloud of locusts.
