Turning books about 1860s praire life into a must-read is no easy task, but millions of people fell in love with Laura Ingalls Wilder's "Little House on the Prairie" series. The stories are based on her own life as a child growing up in the Midwest. But now, Wilder's biographer Pamela Smith Hill is releasing a true biography, not just fiction stories loosely based on her life, and the content isn't all suitable for children. The book is based off "Pioneer Girl," Wilder's autobiography that she wrote herself but was not published.
The Associated Press reports that, "the not-safe-for-children tales include stark scenes of domestic adbuse, love triangles gone awry and a man who lit himself on fire while drunk off whiskey." Not suitable for children indeed.
The public will have to wait until when the book comes out in fall 2015 to hear the full story, but it sounds like it's going to be one juicy read.
