Laura Ingalls Wilder memoir to give gritty view of prairie life

"Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography" -- Wilder's unedited draft that was written for an adult audience and eventually served as the foundation for the popular series -- is slated to be released by the South Dakota State Historical Society Press nationwide this fall. The not-safe-for-children tales include stark scenes of domestic abuse, love triangles gone awry and a man who lit himself on fire while drunk off whiskey.
