But readers who last enjoyed them as children may be astonished at the quiet poetry of Wilder's prose and the force and poignancy of her portrait of the lives of American pioneers. Now The Library of America and editor Caroline Fraser present a definitive boxed set that affirms Wilder's place in the American canon, reintroducing these enduring works to readers young and old. Here, for the first time in two collectible hardcover volumes, are all eight Little House novels-brilliant narratives of the early life of Laura Ingalls and her family as they grow up with the country in the woods, on the plains, and finally in the small towns of the advancing American frontier-plus the posthumous novella The First Four Years , which recounts the early years of the author's marriage to Almanzo Wilder. As a special feature, four rare autobiographical pieces address the need for historical accuracy in children's literature, reveal real life events not included in the novels, and answer the inevitable question: what happened next?
