Community Sponsor: Old World Wisconsin

Lushly illustrated with beloved images and quotations from the Little House series, The World of Laura Ingalls Wilder, by New York Times bestselling author Marta McDowell, examines and celebrates Wilder's unique relationship to the American frontier. Exploring Wilder's deep relationship to the landscape, McDowell starts in Wisconsin, moves into the Dakotas and ends in Missouri. Throughout, she highlights Wilder's life and inspiration, the real places today you can visit and talks about the plants and vegetables featured in the Little House stories.

Marta McDowell lives, gardens, and writes in Chatham, New Jersey. She teaches landscape history and horticulture at the New York Botanical Garden, where she studied landscape design. McDowell also consults for public gardens and private clients. Her particular interest is in authors and their gardens, the connection between the pen and the trowel.
