FYI, it looks like the Politico article on the Little House books by Christine Woodside is highly derivative of the work on this by Anita Clair Fellman, author of Little House, Long Shadow: Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Impact on American Culture (2008) and Pamela Smith Hill’s recent publication of Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography (2014). I’d recommend that scholars start with those books, but as some of you may know, Fellman’s book is highly readable, and Hill’s annotated autobiography was a surprise smash hit for its publisher, the South Dakota Historical Society Press, which was having a hard time keeping books in print it was in such demand!
