I have to admit that it was the title that sucked me in I'm even a fan of Harold Schechter but I don't know that I would have started listening to his Bloodlands true crime ellas had it not been for the macabre punniness of Little Slaughterhouse on the PrairieAnd I am just going to answer the uestion straight off yes the Ingalls family make an appearance in this book They lived in the same general community as the Benders at the same time They may even have had some contact with the Benders although that is pure speculation so coming to Little Slaughterhouse on the Prairie for a peek at the Ingalls isn't completely disappointing The book is however an extended true crime essay so it is definitely not about the Ingalls It is about the aforementioned Benders and the folks they killed mostly for money but also possibly for the thrill in their crappy little shack in the middle of the American mid west in the decade following the US Civil WarThere doesn't seem to be a whole lot of background information available on the Bloody Benders which means we get a lot about their crimes a lot about the pursuit of them once they left Kansas and plenty of theories about where they might have gone but we don't really get any insight into what made them Perhaps a great playwright can take this moment and use it to stage a Bloody Bender play that looks for a deeper truth Regardless as short form true crimes go Little Slaughterhouse on the Prairie is top notch One of my favourite uick listens of all time
