Description:

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 listerature. In addition, this collection contains seven remarkable short stores; 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.
