This book recovers journalistic work by an American icon for whom scholarly recognition is long overdue. Through numerous short stories, novels such as Free Land, and political writings such as Credo, Rose Wilder Lane forged a literary career that would be eclipsed by the shadow of her mother, Laura Ingalls Wilder, whose Little House books Lane edited. Amy Mattson Lauters has assembled a collection of rarely seen nonfiction articles that illustrate Lane's talent as a writer of literary nonfiction, provide on-the-spot views of key moments in American cultural history, and offer sharp commentary on historical events. The Rediscovered Writings of Rose Wilder Lane traces the extraordinary relationship between one woman and American society over fifty pivotal years and offers readers a treasury of writings to enjoy and discuss.
