We get Wilder than ever!

Wednesday night the Wilder Life wagon train rolls into town, as Wendy McClure discusses her new book The Wilder Life: My Adventures in the Lost World of Little House on the Prairie.

What is it about these books that people are still fascinated by them 75 years after they were first written? (I've secretly wanted to go on a vacation to the Dakotas ever since I read these books to my own daughter almost 20 years ago). And who was Laura Ingalls Wilder anyway?

Wendy McClure became obsessed with Laura and the whole Little House thing, and luckily for the rest of us "lesser obsessives" she did something about her obsession.

The Chicagoist web site says "In The Wilder Life McClure brings her readers on a journey in which she discovers the lost world of Little House on the Prairie as untarnished and delightful as it ever was, despite the pieces that have rusted, disappeared or been replaced with time."

Whether you prefer the Prairie or the Big Woods...Wendy McClure, Wednesday night at 7:00 here at The Regulator.
