A devoted boyhood admirer of Fighting Bob LaFollette, Ive become, since reading this marvelous memoir, a grey-haired admirer of Belle.Studs Terkel Before the Kennedys, before the Roosevelts, there was another great and determined liberal family. Among its members was Belle Case LaFollette, wife of Robert LaFollette, Sr., and a true pioneer on everything from womans suffrage to workers rights to keeping the warriors at bay. I enjoyed the book immensely and learned much.John Kenneth Galbraith

About the Author:

George Zabriskie, (B.A., History, Princeton), is, with his wife and partner, Sherry La Follette, the co-author of five mainstream books. They are also film-makers of numerous national and international award-winning social documentary and cultural films, shot on every continent but Australia and Antartica. Lucy Freeman is the author of over 50 books including the bestseller, Fight Against Fears.

From Library Journal:

Although best remembered as a wife and mother of senators and governors, La Follette was the first woman to graduate from the University of Wisconsin Law School and went on to a career as a leader in Progressivism and other late 19th-century reform movements. She also campaigned for votes for women and world peace from the pages of La Follette's Weekly and on the Chatauqua lecture circuit. Drawing heavily on family letters, the authors, one of whom is a grandchild, have produced the first biography of this important reformer. Unfortunately, the biographers skirt the darker aspects of the La Follette history, such as her husband's mental collapses and the factors that led to one son's suicide and the other's alcoholism. Ann H. Sullivan, Tompkins Cortland Community Coll. Lib., Dryden, N.Y.
