Caroline Fraser will speak remotely about her book, “Prairie Fires: The American Dreams of Laura Ingalls Wilder” at 7 p.m. CST on Tuesday, Feb. 13. “‘Prairie Fires’ was selected as one of the New York Times Book Review’s 10 Best Books of 2017. This program gives people the opportunity to learn the author’s insights into the book,” said Catherine Forsch, president of the South Dakota Historical Society Foundation. The foundation, which is the nonprofit fundraising partner of the South Dakota State Historical Society, and the South Dakota Historical Society Press are sponsoring the free program as part of the History and Heritage Book Club. Everyone is welcome to attend. Wilder was born on Feb. 7, 1867. Her “Little House” books continue to shape ideas of pioneer life on the American frontier in the late 1800s. Before “Little House in the Big Woods” was published in 1932, Wilder had previously written a memoir of her life called “Pioneer Girl” that publishers rejected. The manuscript remained unpublished until 2014, when the SDHS Press published “Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography.” “Pioneer Girl Perspectives” is a collection of essays edited by Nancy Tystad Koupal, director of the Pioneer Girl Project, and published by the SDHS Press. Fraser contributed an essay to “Pioneer Girl Perspectives” that examines the relationship between Wilder and her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane. The professional relationship between Wilder and Lane is at the heart of “Prairie Fires,” according to Fraser. She will discuss this relationship during her talk on Feb. 13. Fraser is editor of the Library of America’s two-volume edition of Wilder’s “Little House” books and has written about Wilder and other topics for magazines and other publications. She holds a doctorate in literature from Harvard University. People in De Smet, Wilder’s childhood home, will be able to participate in the program at the De Smet Middle School through the state’s video conferencing network. They will be able to see, hear and talk to Fraser and people at the Cultural Heritage Center. People in other locations who would like the program broadcast to a location such as a school or university on the DDN should contact (605) 773-6006 for more information. “Prairie Fires,” “Pioneer Girl” and “Pioneer Girl Perspectives” are all available at the Heritage Stores at the Cultural Heritage Center and the Capitol. Dewey reached up to straighten his tie and stuck a finger up a nostril by mistake. Here he was, on the most momentous evening of his life and he couldn’t do one little thing right. Tie a tie. Every 9-year-old boy getting ready for church could do it, but not Dewey. He cussed his awkwardness and inability to do anything short of causing a disaster. How many guys are there who could actually put a black baldy cow in a treetop? Just him. No … Dewey, our pharaoh of fertilizer because he could shovel it into a pickup without killing himself, was uniquely qualified in the clumsy department. But he smiled as he thought of how he and Emily first shared a kiss because Dewey had tripped on a tree root and fell on her, and how they had been fastened together on the ground by a fishing fly Marvin had tied for him to aid in his pursuit of the lady with the lovely cheekbones. Stonefly nymph on a number six. Dewey had taken two showers this evening to expunge any lingering “product” and had a corsage all ready. Tonight’s the night. Yes, tonight he was going to pop the question. Tonight. Over dinner at the Italian place, where they’d had their first date. Emily was radiantly beautiful in her yellow dress, which set off her outstanding cheekbones better than a Hollywood camera. They took a small table off to one side and ordered a bottle of wine. “Emily,” he said, “I have to ask you something.” “Yes, Honey?” “Will you …” As he leaned forward, so did his glass of wine, and her glass of wine, and the table. He helped her up and saw the damage to her dress and she asked to go home and change. What right would he have to ask her to stomach a lifetime of his little fatalities? He’d have to think about that.
