Description
Information
Enthralling generations of readers, the narrative of capture by Native Americans is arguably the first American literary form dominated by women's experiences. Many such captivity narratives were fact-based but often transformed by authors or editors into spellbinding adventure stories, sentimental tales, spiritual autobiographies, or anti-Indian propaganda. For this pioneering collection of 10 extraordinary tales for this most intriguing and enduring literary genre, Kathryn Zabelle Derounian-Stodola has selected narratives that span 200 years (1682-1892) and display literary as well as geographical diversity. Her fascinating introduction to the history and influence of the genre shows it to be a foundation text of American culture with enduring popular appeal.
