    Book details


Hobomok, A Tale of Early Times is the provocative story of an upperclass white woman who marries an Indian chief, has a child, then leaves him--with the child--for another man. This novel, originally published in 1824, is a powerful first among antipatriarchal and antiracist novels in American literature. In addition, this collection contains seven remarkable short stories; an extract on Indian women from Child's groundbreaking History of the Condition of Women in Various Ages and Nations (1835); a selection from her best-selling volume of journalistic sketches, Letters from New-York (1843); and her eloquent Appeal for Indians (1868). This revised edition of -Hobomok- and Other Writings on Indians includes three new stories: -The Church in the Wilderness, - -Willie Wharton, - and -The Indians---as well as explanatory notes and an updated bibliography.

A courageous work of fiction . . . one of the first books by a woman to consciously attack the patriarchy. . . . A landmark.--Belles Lettres
