Laura Ingalls Wilder's Insights into Modern Day Troubles

I stumbled upon this article in the Marshall-Democrat News by staff writer, Marcia Gorrell, who says that even though it seems the world is facing new challenges that never could have been imagined years ago, things may not have changed as much as we think.

Gorrell refers to the book, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Farm Journalist, which features columns Laura wrote for the Missouri Ruralist Magazine from 1911-1924. And in this book, Gorrell has found that Laura discussed many of the same issues that we face today.

If you would like to read the article in its entirety, you will find it here.

I've long been a fan of Laura Ingalls Wilder, but I haven't yet read any of her writing other than the children's books. I'll have to look into her other writing.
