Slate Q&A with Bill Anderson, editor of Laura Ingalls Wilder's Selected Letters.

Caroline Fraserís interview with William Anderson, editor of the new Selected Letters of Laura Ingalls Wilder, covers the enduring popularity of the Little House books, as well as the prickly relationship between Wilder and her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane.

Library of America's two-volume edition of Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House Books, edited by Caroline Fraser.

Rewilding the World offers the first definitive account of a visionary campaign to confront the mass extinction crisis, which--if unchecked--may destroy half of all species of plants and animals on earth by the end of the century. Breathtaking in scope and ambition, rewilding aims to save species by restoring habitats, reviving migration corridors, and brokering peace between people and predators. Traveling with wildlife biologists and conservationists, Fraser reports on the vast projects that are turning Europe's former Iron Curtain into a greenbelt, creating transfrontier Peace Parks to renew elephant routes throughout Africa, and linking protected areas from the Yukon to Mexico and beyond.

An inspiring story of scientific discovery and grassroots action, Rewilding the World offers hope for a richer, wilder future.
