Book - 1990
Rate this:
Jackson is best remembered today for her novel Ramona, which she hoped would arouse public sentiment for California's Mission Indians as Uncle Tom's cabin had for black slaves. Shere (American Indian history, City College of San Francisco) describes the last six years of Jackson's life (1879-1885), spent in an intense struggle to promote the rights of Native Americans, situating Jackson's work within the larger Indian rights movement of the 19th century.
