Prairie Boy is a beautiful book about an iconic American architect who changed the way we think about architecture. I enjoyed learning about how Wright's love of the prairie translated into his house designs. This book covers Wright's life, coming full circle from his days a child exploring the shapes on the prairie to turning those shapes into Prairie Houses.
