The life story of the feminist founder of the american libertarian movement Peter Bagge returns with a biography of another fascinating twentieth-century trailblazer?the writer, feminist, war correspondent, and libertarian Rose Wilder Lane. Following the popularity and critical acclaim of Woman Rebel: The Margaret Sanger Story and Fire!! The Zora Neale Hurston Story, Credo: The Rose Wilder Lane Story is a fast-paced, charming, informative look at the brilliant Lane. Among other achievements, she was a founder of the American libertarian movement and a champion of her mother, Laura Ingalls Wilder, in bringing the classic Little House on the Prairie series to the American public. Much like Sanger and Hurston, Lane was an advocate for women?s rights who led by example, challenging norms in her personal and professional life. Anti-government and anti-marriage, Lane didn?t think that gender should hold anyone back from experiencing all the world had to offer. Though less well-known today, in her lifetime she was one of the highest-paid female writers in America and a political and literary luminary, friends with Herbert Hoover, Dorothy Thompson, Sinclair Lewis, and Ayn Rand, to name a few. Bagge?s portrait of Lane is heartfelt and affectionate, probing into the personal roots of her rugged individualism. Credo is a deeply researched dive into a historical figure whose contributions to American society are all around us, from the books we read to the politics we debate.

Cartoonist Peter Bagge is the Harvey Award-winning author of the acclaimed 1990s alternative comic series Hate starring slacker hero Buddy Bradley, and a regular contributor to Reason magazine. A graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York City, he got his start in comics in the R. Crumb-edited magazine Weirdo. Bagge has published two critically acclaimed books with Drawn & Quarterly: 2017?s Fire!! The Zora Neale Hurston Story and 2013?s Woman Rebel: The Margaret Sanger Story. He lives in Seattle with his wife Joanne, daughter, and three cats.

'It's irresistible to try and imagine what Hurston would make of this book, and inevitable to conclude that she'd approve.' - NPR Best Books of 2017 'A bright, highly moving introduction to a figure who is no longer obscure, but the full range of whose accomplishments we have yet to take into account.' - Los Angeles Review of Books
