May is an exciting time with its warm weather, end of school, looking forward to long summer nights sort of feel. But, if you were like over 6 million other people in America, May also means the excitement that revolves around the running of the Indy 500.

Caroline Fraser says that what Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote down about Kansas, long ago, says a great deal about her, even though the Kansas prairie was home to her very first memories. She wrote those memories down on "Big Chief" tablets and never intended them for publication, unlike so much else she put to writing.
