Hello, friends! 🙂
It’s another FLF here ~ and I get to feature another received-for-Christmas book! 🙂 If you love The Little House book series by Laura Ingalls Wilder, this is a beautiful companion book – a kind of herbal/floral history of the plants and landscapes featured in the series and in her letters. It bases its premise on the books growing out of the environment of its author. Rich in illustrations, maps, and photos, this thick book has delighted me in recent evenings after my own writing is done and has made me think about how natural environments shape other writers’ books, too.

“Once upon a time.” Like many children’s stories, Laura Ingalls Wilder opened Little House in the Big Woods with this quiet invitation to readers to turn their thoughts back in time. Hers was a long story, rooted in with her father’s and her husband’s, tales of family and farms and nature – a nature that was sometimes inviting and sometimes ferocious. It began in Wisconsin.

Your turn! What are you reading this week, friends?
