For the American conservative movement, the books were part of a big shift, away from emphasizing wealth and toward emphasizing the power of the individual to do what he or she wants. She wrote essays and book reviews in favor of free markets and against government programs; she refused a ration card during World War II and grew and canned most of her food at her Danbury, Connecticut, house.
She kept a hand in conservative thinking until her death in With the comfortable income provided by the Little House royalties, Rose helped fund a free-market academy in Colorado called the Freedom School. Two of the people who attended the school were perhaps the most profoundly influential donors in modern conservativism: Charles and David Koch. The story of how Little House —one of the most beloved series of books in American history—entwined itself with the growth of free-market conservatism is one of the most dramatic, and little-appreciated, examples of the way literature can shape national politics.
The books came out just when the old pioneers were remembering their hardships and expressing anger that Americans thought they needed the New Deal. Though the books carried the name of just one author, behind them was an unusual collaborative relationship.
Laura Ingalls Wilder was herself one of those tough former pioneers. She had endured a lot of hard times. By age 13, she had moved six times. She married a farmer and, after heartbreaking disasters in Dakota Territory told about in the unedited book published after her death, The First Four Years raised chickens and fruit with him in Missouri. In middle age, Laura began writing essays for a farm paper.
Rose pressed her to first write a long memoir an annotated version, Pioneer Girl , was published last year. Lane knew writing and publishing. Before working with her mother on the Little House books, she had been a journalist, best-selling fiction writer for big magazines and book author—she wrote a dramatic and glowing campaign biography of Herbert Hoover in She had helped many of her writer friends polish their work. As the Little House books took form, evolving from personal reminiscence to carefully crafted fiction, they took on a subtle but consistent ideological cast—an optimistic take on pioneer times that showed struggling settlers making decisions based on their desire to follow the Declaration of Independence.
Laura Ingalls Wilder was herself a political conservative, suspicious of the handouts of the New Deal. And her daughter was more ideologically driven. For Rose, self-reliance was an ethic she learned growing up, and it became an intellectual principle she fixed upon through extensive reading.
For all her sophistication and impressive connections, she was a self-taught intellectual whose schooling had ended in roughly ninth grade. Rose kept detailed diaries for many years and wrote hundreds of letters to friends and to her mother. In Little Town on the Prairie , Laura, then a young teenager, has an epiphany about being responsible for herself after she hears a speech about independence at a Fourth of July ceremony.

Both Wilder and Lane thought that the solution to the Great Depression was to let people ride it out and learn to get by on less. The resulting books were best-sellers that celebrated the power of the individual over the government as an American principle just when that debate was raging over Franklin D. These ideas fit with an anti-government-regulation movement that was beginning to light a fire under political conservatives. And they reached more readers with those ideas than a political manifesto could ever have done. The Little House books were also very lucrative.

This made Rose Wilder Lane important for another reason. She had been struggling with her own political books. After moving from the Wilder farm in Mansfield, Missouri, to her own house in Connecticut in , Lane met Ayn Rand and became quite friendly with Isabel Paterson; all three women would be called the mothers of the libertarian movement. Nearly broke after a period of very little fiction writing, Lane turned to essays and commentary. In , the same year the last Little House book, These Happy Golden Years, came out to great accolades, Lane published a treatise about the power of the individual to do the right thing.
It was a short, broad-brush gloss over recorded history. She called it The Discovery of Freedom , and it received almost no notice at the time, although Herbert Hoover was persuaded to write a tepid blurb.

Lane also wrote a regular column for an anti-New Deal African-American paper, The Pittsburgh Courier , in which she blended her fervor for individual freedom with antiracist statements. In other writing, she dove into economics, criticizing liberal theories like Keynsian economics in regular reviews for the conservative National Economic Council Review of Books. In , she became editor of that publication, taking over from its first editor, Albert Jay Nock, who also admired her freedom book.
