Give Me Liberty by Rose Wilder Lane
published 1936
(She is the daughter of Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of "Little House on the Prairie" series)

I read this years ago and searched it out hoping it was PD. Parts of it sound like they could have been written yesterday.
If I am around 12 years from now, it will be the project first on my list.

I read a really interesting biography of Laura Ingalls Wilder that goes into the real lives and back stories of her family during the time period of the "Little House" books and then her life afterwards and it was fascinating. She had a very complex relationship with Rose and they actually seemed like they both could be hard to get along with! Rose had some very definite ideas about how life and politics should be, that's for sure!

The book was called Prairie Fires: The American Dreams of Laura Ingalls Wilder by Caroline Fraser.
