The Little House on the Prairie books and TV show have inspired generations, but few people know the history of the Ingalls family in Freemasonry.
Discover new stories about Laura Ingalls Wilder in Little Lodges on the Prairie: Freemasonry & Laura Ingalls Wilder, the first book to comprehensively document the role Masonry and the Eastern Star played in the lives of this iconic American family.
A lively and informative look at this lesser-known aspect of Laura’s life, including documents which have rarely been seen and never before been published, Little Lodges on the Prairie gives readers a new and unique perspective on Laura Ingalls Wilder and her family.
"Little Lodges on the Prairie…is full of intriguing glimpses into pioneer community life…Lynn's research is painstaking and her documentation excellent. Her presentation is clear and easy to follow…Altogether, an excellent book, highly recommended for Wilder and Ingalls fans who want to extend their understanding of the lives of this important pioneer family." ~Susan Wittig Albert, bestselling author of A Wilder Rose, StoryCircle Book Reviews
