The Wilder Life: My Adventures in the Lost World of “Little House on the Prairie,” by Wendy McClure

Part travelogue of the Midwest, part meditation on the beloved “Little House” books, their author, Laura Ingalls Wilder and her daughter and editor, Rose Wilder Lane. This book reminded me of Sarah Vowell’s writing and of why Wilder’s books with their “clear simple style [and] wealth of fascinating detail” are still enjoyed by children today.
