But, that is not the case.
Here's a few facts to consider next time you read Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House on the Prairie.
Charles took his family into "Indian Territory" in 1868.
By then, about 800--yes, that's right 800--treaties had been negotiated between the tribes and the federal government.
Comment: This is a classic case of bitchin' and moanin' about--i.e., criticizing--someone's work. Reese has nothing good to say about Little House on the Prairie and its stereotypes. Yet the book is set in stone, its author dead and gone, so what purpose does it serve?
Simple. Reese's criticism educates children, parents, and teachers about the mistakes and omissions in Little House on the Prairie. Armed with the information, they can read it more critically or avoid it altogether.
