Term: Wilder, Laura Ingalls, 1867-1957

Definition: author born near Pepin, Wis., and 5-time Newberry Medal winner; best known for her "Little House" series, portraying childhood on the midwestern prairie landscape, which began publication in 1932. Though the books begin as children's literature, they become increasingly difficult in reading level and offer increasingly subtle insights as characters age. They remain immensely popular with young people today. View more information elsewhere at wisconsinhistory.org.
