Upon discovering his own passion and talent for the subject, he dropped out of school and went to work for an architectural firm in Chicago. He eventually parted ways with the firm and began designing a series of public buildings and private residencies that earned him fame, including the earthquake proof Imperial Hotel in Tokyo..."

Title: Prairie Boy. Frank Lloyd Wright Turns The Heartland Into a Home (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Calkins Creek, An Imprint of Highlights, Honesdale, Pennsylvania)

Author: Rosenstock, Barb; Art by Neal, Christopher Silas

Description: Dust jacket: "Frank Lloyd Wright loved the Wisconsin prairie where he was born, with its wide-open sky and waves of tall grass. 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. But he didn't think the Victorian-era homes found there fit the prairie landscape. Using his knowledge and love of shapes, Frank created houses more organic to the land. He redesigned the American home inside and out, developing a truly unique architecture style that celebrated the country's landscape and lifestyle."
