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 Childs 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.
