Prairie Boy


the details

Frank Lloyd Wright loved the Wisconsin prairie where he was born, and as his family moved across the United States, young Frank found his own home in shapes: rectangles, triangles, half-moons, and circles. When he returned to his beloved prairie, Frank pursued a career in architecture, as he didn't think the Victorian-era homes found there fit the prairie landscape. Prairie Boy: Frank Lloyd Wright Turns the Heartland into a Home shows young readers how he used his knowledge and love of shapes to create houses more organic to the land.
