"Rose of Dutcher's Coolly tells the story of a country girl of precocious ability who is raised by her widower father on a small Wisconsin farm. She wants to be a poet and eventually attends the university, where her talent is encouraged. A carefully crafted defense of the New Woman, the first generation of women to achieve economic and social indepence, Rose of Dutcher's Coolly deals with issues that are still with us - the nature of femininity, the problem of reconciling career and family, the meaning of "love," and the need for equal opportunity. Above all, it records a nineteenth-century man's vision of a world that still eludes us, one in which men and women are equal partners. This edition reprints the text of the 1895 printing and includes an introduction that places the novel in the historical context of the early feminist movement."--Jacket

The book of the American Indian by Hamlin Garland( Book )

21 editions published between 1923 and 2005 in English and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In these and other stories written from 1890-1905, Hamlin Garland sought to capture his vision of the spirit of the Native American Indian in transition. Based on ten years of visits to reservations in the American West, these stories are of interest for readers today in part because they illustrate a sincere and well-intentioned white reformer coming to understand a culture radically at odds with his own - and discovering in the process that his own culture is less "advanced" than he had supposed." "This edition reprints the text and illustrations from the 1923 printing as well as two of Garland's essays indicting the treatment of Indians. An introduction places the stories in the historical context of Garland's life and times."--Jacket
