Helen Hunt Jackson And Her Indian Reform Legacy
BY VALERIE SHERER MATHES
A detailed account of the last years of Jackson's life (1879-1885), when she struggled to promote the rights of American Indians, especially in California, displaced and dispossessed by the U.S. government. Jackson's efforts culminated in the publication of A Century of Dishonor, an indictment of the government's Indian policy, and the novel Ramona, a sympathetic portrayal of the plight of California's Mission Indians. Her second husband was a Quaker - William Sharpless Jackson.
