There's a very interesting discussion going on on a Broadsheet article about which of the famous mother and daughter are "more interesting people," either Laura Ingalls Wilder or Rose Wilder? The Kate Harding article is ridiculous (why should one woman be "more interesting" [and therefore more valid?] based on not the Little House books themselves, but on the TV show), but the comment discussion is well-informed and calls into question how literature can be used as a political agenda; it also divulges historical background on the lives of both women. Since I've seen several good posts on OS about LIW, some of you may be intrigued. It would be nice if the article's author would answer some of her detractors in the comments section; the jury is still out on that possibility.
