Missouri: The Little House Like You've Never Heard with Natalie Franke

Who was the mother of libertarian politics? Sharon is joined by Natalie Franke, founder of the Rising Tide Society and author of the new book “Built to Belong”, to learn about Laura Ingalls Wilder’s “Little House” children's book series. Chronicling the life of a pioneer family living on the prairies in the Midwest during the great westward expansion, the “Little House” series is a children’s book collection that was later adapted into a popular television series and was first published in 1932. It is estimated that the Little House franchise is worth over $100 million today. Listen to learn more about which family member was Laura Ingalls Wilder’s ghostwriter for the series, the little known adult life of Laura Ingalls Wilder, how the Wilder family was connected to the rise of libertarianism in the United States, and who owns the copyright to the “Little House” series in 2021.
