Marta McDowell’s A Wilder World

Marta McDowell’s A Wilder World has just become available for pre-order on Amazon.com! The book is scheduled for publication by Timber Press in September 2017.

Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House series chronicled frontier life in the late 1860s. The classic books are both a coming of age story based on Wilder’s life and a reflection of the pioneer spirit of the time. They are also deeply rooted in the natural world. The plants, animals, and landscapes are so integral to the stories, they almost become their own characters. A Wilder World, by New York Times bestselling author Marta McDowell, beautifully explores Laura Ingalls Wilder’s deep relationship to the landscape and illuminates a crucial aspect of the pioneer experience. Featuring the original art by Helen Sewell and Garth Williams and historical and contemporary photographs, A Wilder World is a must-read companion to the Little House books and a must-have treasure for the millions of readers enchanted by Laura’s wild and beautiful life.

I will post cover art and further information about this upcoming book once it becomes available.

  1. Good for you, Benjamin, for spotting this upcoming Wilder book. My friend Marta McDowell is a literary horticultural historian and we’ve travelled the Little House Trail in bits and pieces as she’s gathered the info for this book. She will be attending LauraPalooza in Springfield, MO, next summer, too. I know you’ll appreciate this new book and meeting her. Merry Christmas!
