The Homesteader As Critic

I meant to post yesterday, but we got a little bogged down with The Man of the Place’s birthday. It was a sweet celebration.

We at the Homesteader are big fans of Pamela Smith Hill’s recent biography of Laura, Laura Ingalls Wilder: A Writer’s Life. Recently the catalog for the book’s publisher, the South Dakota State Historical Society Press, made its way into my mailbox. On page 4, where Laura Ingalls Wilder, A Writer’s Life was listed for sale, excerpts of reviews from three publications ran alongside the book listing, and the first publication quoted was the Homesteader. Later on when I checked the book’s page on the Press’s web site, I discovered they included quite a bit more than the excerpt in the catalog.

Haven’t read the book yet? You can try before you buy. The publisher offers a preview of Chapter 1 in PDF form.
