Written between the early 1920's to 1960 (with some gaps in the years, due to gaps in their friendship), the letters exchanged between these two intelligent, creative women are really a treat. I was lucky enough to be able to borrow a copy from the New York State Public Library system, and now I want my own copy. Rose Wilder Lane is, in my opinion, a greatly neglected and unjustly forgotten writer. Her thoughts about careers, marriage and about life in general were original and far ahead of her time. Dorothy is a little less original, but a little more intellectually balanced, somehow. In any case, I recommend this collection highly.
