Interview: The Discovery of Freedom
Rose Wilder Lane, famous to most for her connection to the Little House on the Prairie novels, was a celebrated author in her own right. Her 1943 book The Discovery of Freedom was a landmark work in free-market thought, influencing generations of scholars to come. The book has been a featured selection in both the Saint Louis and Columbia Show-Me Institute book clubs. On Jan. 11, the institute's editor, Eric D. Dixon, appeared on the Columbia radio show hosted by institute supporter Steve Spellman on KOPN 89.5 FM to talk about Lane's book and her wide-ranging legacy as a touchstone of the modern freedom movement.
