Very interesting, especially for Laura Ingalls Wilder fans to read a book by her daughter.

Rose Wilder Lane is a very underappreciated author, and is today better remembered as the daughter of Laura Ingalls Wilder. But if you are fortunate enough to obtain a copy of FREE LAND, RWL's last novel, you will not be disappointed. The temptation is to try to compare RWL's writing to her mother's Little House books, and expect her writing to be like Laura's: don't do it! Enjoy it without any preconceived notions. The author mingles various facts about her parents and her grandparents and creates a great story of homesteading in the late 1870's.

I also recommend A LITTLE HOUSE SAMPLER, edited by William Anderson, which contains several of Rose Wilder Lane's best short stories.
