It’s certainly true that the mores of the age coming through strongly can destroy the a book for later generations.
The Wilder books got tarnished falsely by people with an unhealthy agenda. I’ve been all through the various areas where she lived. Some of those little “towns” probably still look the same, with dirt main streets, a few false fronted buildings built in the 1800’s,and few people.ChrisinHove wrote: ↑Thu Jun 11, 2020 1:56 amIt’s certainly true that the mores of the age coming through strongly can destroy the a book for later generations.
It’s disappointing, though, that the fantastic Laura Ingalls Wilder books, arguably proper westerns, seem to have somehow become tarnished.
Others, though, really are terrible. The Centurions novels come to mind, about the French IndoChina and Algerian wars.
I told you so. It is so well written and a lot of that is how these guys acted. It has some really funny stuff in it. (Along with shoot outs and girls)
