Laura Ingalls Wilder: Critical Perspectives

Since 1932, when Laura Ingalls Wilder published her first novel, Little House in the Big Woods, Americans have been fascinated by Wilder's representation of the American frontier and pioneer life. That fascination has been renewed with the 2014 publication of Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography. Edited by Pamela Smith Hill and published by the South Dakota Historical Society, Pioneer Girl offers readers a view into Wilder's life and her writing process. Hill's introduction and extensive annotations, intended at least in part for an academic audience, allow readers to see Wilder, her life, and her career in context.

For the patient's position in the therapeutic relationship to be reconfigured, perhaps the healthcare professional's position needs to be likewise explored and reconsidered. For patienthood to be compatible with personhood, professionalism too may need to be compatible with personhood.
