Rose eshte e bija e Laura Elizabeth Ingalls Wilder qe ka shkruar Little House series e famshem.
Rose, eshte autorja e nje libri udhetime ne Shqiperi: The Peaks of Shala (1923). Ne ate liber me nota te larta vleresohen shqiptaret fizikisht dhe shpirterisht. Si Rose dhe e jema e saj Laura, krijuan lidhje te forta me Shqiperine dhe shqiptaret. Ata vleresohen si race e jashtezakonshme e bukur dhe fisnike.
Libri Peaks of Shala eshte nje liber i rralle. Ate eshte thuajse e pamundur ta gjesh dhe pas kerkimesh ne internet gjeta vetem nje kopje te perdorur me vleren 194 $ .
Ky eshte komenti per autoren dhe dy fjale per librin:
[quoteem]LANE, Rose Wilder
Born 5 December 1886, De Smet, South Dakota; died 30 October 1968, Danbury, Connecticut
Daughter of Almanzo and Laura Ingalls Wilder; married Gillette Lane, 1909
Unconventional from the first, Rose Wilder Lane left her parents' Mansfield, Missouri, home to work as a telegraph operator for Western Union. She married a land speculator whose ne'erdo-well behavior soon forced Lane to fend for herself as the first woman real estate agent in California. She was a reporter for the San Francisco Bulletin from 1914 to 1918. Written during this period, and indicative of her admiration for American heroes, are Henry Ford's Own Story (1917) and The Making of Herbert Hoover (1920), both panegyrics to men she considered archetypally American in their resourcefulness and individualism. After formally divorcing her husband, Lane worked for the American Red Cross during World War I, primarily in Russia, Turkey, and Albania. The Peaks of Shala (1923) is a travelogue of her adventures in Albania.[/quoteem]

[quoteem]She traveled extensively in Europe and Asia as part of the Red Cross. In 1926, Lane, Helen Dore Boylston and their French maid traveled from France to Albania in a car they had named "Zenobia". An account of the journey, Travels With Zenobia: Paris to Albania by Model T Ford was published in 1983. Lane became enamored with Albania, and lived there for several long periods during the 1920s, spaced between sojourns to Paris and her parents' Rocky Ridge Farm in Missouri. She informally adopted a young Albanian boy named Rexh Meta, who she claimed saved her life on a dangerous mountain trek; she later sponsored his education at Oxford University in England[/quoteem]
