SUMMARY

"If I could write a story that would do for the Indian a thousandth part of what "Uncle Tom's Cabin" did for the Negro," wrote Helen Hunt Jackson, "I would be thankful the rest of my life." Jackson surpassed this ambition with the publication of "Ramona," her popular 1884 romantic bestseller. A beautiful half Native American, half-Scottish orphan raised by a harsh Mexican "ranchera," Ramona enters into a forbidden love affair with a heroic Mission Indian named Alessandro. The pair's adventures after they elope paint a vivid portrait of California history and the woeful fate of Native Americans and Mexicans whose lands and rights were stripped as Anglo-Americans overran southern California. Set from the first American edition of 1884, this Modern Library Paperback Classic includes Jose Marti's 1888 prologue (translated from the Spanish by Esther Allen).Mathes, Valerie Sherer is the author of 'Ramona A Story', published 2002 under ISBN 9780451528421 and ISBN 0451528425.
