Reviews

"Cartoonist Peter Bagge illustrates Lane's hurly-burly life in his own inimitable way."--NPR

"Those who savor tales of adventurous real-life women will enjoy Bagge's tribute, whether they have dived into Little House or not."--Library Journal

"Bagge is known for creating graphic biographies of fascinating women... [Credo] will remind readers Lane was a celebrated writer in her own right (and likely did an enormous amount of editing to her mother's manuscripts)."--Shondaland

"Lane was a revolutionary."--Reason Magazine

"Peter Bagge is out with his third biography of a (currently) relatively unknown feminist trailblazer."--The Stranger

"This loopy, frantic, and personality-packed tribute is fitting for one of America's lesser-known gonzo feminist writers."--Publishers Weekly

"What Bagge has fashioned is a layered picture of a woman who was so far ahead of her time, it's fair to say in 2019 her moment is still decades away."--London Free Press

"Bagge approaches [Rose Wilder Lane's] story with his trademark rubbery style and a spiky wit."--The Scotland Herald

"The delightfully loopy, cartoony drawings tell us not to take Lane as seriously as she took herself."--Booklist
