    The best book that I ve read thus far in 2019 Absolutely fascinating, meticulously researched, beautifully illustrated, and I laughed out loud on than one occasion Rose Wilder Lane lived quite a life, and after reading this book, I will never look at Manly and Half Pint the same way again.

    You should know by now that I am a HUGE Laura Ingalls Wilder fan HUGE I ve taken a Massive Open Online Course MOOC on her, I ve been to her house, and my youngest sister is named Laura not a coincidence I haven t known much about Rose until recent years, and this is a fun, odd, and much needed graphic biography of her After reading Prairie Fires by Caroline Frasier, I was pretty well convinced that Rose was a grade A nutjob I m glad this book tells things from her perspective, as rarely is a person just a crazy basket case without to the story.First of all, her mother, Laura Ingalls Wilder, was a difficult mother demanding, cheap, and grumpy And as an only child, she had no one to share the burden with Then her own life didn t go remotely as expected From an early marriage that didn t work out to losing a baby and having a hysterectomy, meaning no children ever, to becoming a famous writer and friends with influential people across the twentieth century, I hadn t given either the difficulties or achievements in her life much weight In her lifetime, she was the highest paid woman journalist writer with many bestsellers She even went to Vietnam in her 70s to write about that war Very well traveled, she kept trying to get away but was always inextricably pulled back home to Mansfield, Missouri She was inspired by, helped with, and felt sidelined by her mother s books Even thou...

    Prior to marrying, my main exposure to Laura Ingalls Wilder was through the TV show At my wife s urging, I actually read all the Little House books and made a pilgrimage with her to the Ingalls home sites in Wisconsin, Minnesota and South Dakota in the mid 90s We also read most of the spin off series written by others about Laura s grandmother, mother and daughter The Rose books were my least favorite of those, and added to some other nonfiction I read about Laura and some samplings of Rose s writing, I ended up with a pretty negative attitude toward Rose Wilder Lane.This book does little to improve my opinion of her I still find her annoying as hell but at least I can appreciate that she was a complex person than I previously thought.Bagge s biography is not rigorous history He skips around through her life and dramatizes the moments from Rose s life he finds most interesting, often going for a humorous angle He is obviously on Team Rose, heaping lots of scorn on Laura whenever he has a chance.My wife is on Team Laura or a bonnethead as I found out from Bagge , so I took a great deal of pleasure...

    I liked Bagge s other biography comics, so I bought this one too Here is a woman I never heard of before, but apparently I kind of know who her mother was What interested me than Lane s writing was she was one of the woman credited for helping form the Libertarian philosophy She was of an anar...

    I received an advance copy from the publisher at ALA Midwinter.This was as far as I know my first Peter Bagge book I ve known his work forever he s inescapable in Seattle literary comics stuff , but this was the first time I ve read one of his books This was also the first book about either Wilder woman I ve read outside of the Little House books and some assorted profiles in magazines which looked at Rose with a somewhat cynical eye due to the libertarian stuff This was a good introduction to her life and work, beyond the surface that I d known I knew she d been key to the Little House books being published, but I didn t realize HOW much work she d put into it, or how fraught her relationship with Laura was throughout her life Rose, after coming out of a pretty intense childhood, became a badass, traveling the world and unafraid to explore her beliefs and stand up for them While I don t know that I d suggest this as a solid single source, it s ...

    I really didn t know much about Rose Wilder Lane before this, other than that she was Laura Ingalls Wilder s daughter, but I did know that most stories about her are not sympathetic I think this did a great job making Rose look...

    I tried, but I just couldn t get into this It s too episodic and disjointed, just lurching from one bit to the next with no context or transitions I don t like the artwork much, either everyone just looks an...

    I was unable to overcome my personal bias as a Laura Ingalls Wilder fan and fully embrace this book I believe I imprinted on Caroline Fraser s book Prairie Fires The American Dreams of Laura Ingalls Wilder, and my understanding of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Rose Wilder Lane dynamic is pretty much set.Still, I was impressed that Peter Bagge would give Rose the graphic novel treatment and I thought I owed it to Rose to read a biography that was devoted to just her Of course, no biographer of either Rose or Laura could completely leave out their mother daughter relationship or their professional collaboration, but Bagge seems to delight in an ugly portrayal of Laura Indeed, in his notes, he calls out Caroline Fraser for what he says is an unfair portrayal of Rose, and I believe he went out of his way in Credo to correct the record For a Laura fan, it doesn t make me sympathetic to Rose, it makes me see the biographer himself as spiteful and mean spirited.And, once I was feeling down on Peter Bagge, I started finding all kinds of flaws in the graphic novel itself sloppy work with some of the captions, grammatical errors and typos in the notes...

    This graphic novel is the life of Rose Wilder Lane It jumped around a lot and seemed like a lot crammed into a short book I found the information at the ending interesting than the other book I do appreciate the work that went into the book by bringing the story together and the artwork.
