This early work, originally published in 1842 is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. Unusually progressive for the time it was published, Sedgwick's novel contains strong feminist overtones and notions of justice towards Native Americans. In this, her third novel, Sedgwick recounts a dramatic conflict between colonists, Native Americans and the British Empire. A fascinating novel that earned its author a large readership and healthy reputation and is still an interesting read today. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
