Domesticity with a difference : the nonfiction of Catharine Beecher, Sarah J. Hale, Fanny Fern, and Margaret Fuller by Nicole Tonkovich( )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No previous study has grouped Hale, Beecher, Fern, and Fuller together because each promoted differing political goals. While respecting these differences, this focus on their nonfiction reveals their strong professional links and demonstrates the similar effects of their writings, which prescribed domesticity for the lives of other women while justifying their own professionalism
The allotment plot : Alice C. Fletcher, E. Jane Gay, and Nez Perce survivance by Nicole Tonkovich( )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Allotment Plot reexamines the history of allotment on the Nez Perce Reservation from 1889 to 1892 to account for and emphasize the Nez Perce side of the story. By including Nez Perce responses to allotment, Nicole Tonkovich argues that the assimilationist aims of allotment ultimately failed due in large part to the agency of the Nez Perce people themselves throughout the allotment process. The Nez Perce were actively involved in negotiating the terms under which allotment would proceed and simultaneously engaged in ongoing efforts to protect their stories and other cultural properties from institutional appropriation by the allotment agent, Alice C. Fletcher, who was a respected anthropologist, and her photographer and assistant, E. Jane Gay. The Nez Perce engagement in this process laid a foundation for the long-term survival of the tribe and its culture. Making use of previously unknown archival sources, Fletcher's letters, Gay's photographs and journalistic accounts, oral tribal histories, and analyses of performances such as parades and verbal negotiations, Tonkovich assembles a masterful portrait of Nez Perce efforts to control their own future and provides a vital counternarrative of the allotment period, which is often portrayed as disastrous to Native polities."--Publisher's website
Elder Northfield's home; or, Sacrificed on the Mormon altar; a story of the blighting curse of polygamy by Jennie Bartlett Switzer( )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 979 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The practice of plural marriage, commonly known as polygamy, stirred intense controversy in postbellum America until 1890, when the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints first officially abolished the practice. Elder Northfield's Home, published by A. Jennie Bartlett in 1882, is both a staunchly antipolygamy novel and a call for the sentimental repatriation of polygamy's victims. Her book traces the fate of a virtuous and educated English immigrant woman, Marion Wescott, who marries a Mormon elder, Henry Northfield. Shocked when her husband violates his promise not to take a second wife, Marion attempts to flee during the night, toddler son in her arms, pulling her worldly possessions in his toy wagon. She returns to her husband, however, and the balance of the novel traces the effects of polygamy on Marion, Henry, and their children; their eventual rejection of plural marriage; and their return to a normal and healthy family structure. Nicole Tonkovich's critical introduction includes both historical contextualization and comments on selected primary documents, providing a broader look at the general public's reception of the practice of polygamy in the nineteenth century."--

Saga of Chief Joseph by Helen Addison Howard( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In "Saga of Chief Joseph," Helen Addison Howard has written the definitive biography of the great Nez Perce chief, a diplomat among warriors. In times of war and peace, Chief Joseph exhibited gifts of the first rank as a leader for peace and tribal liberty. Following his people's internment in Indian Territory in 1877, Chief Joseph secured their release in 1885 and led them back to their home country. Fiercely principled, he never abandoned his quest to have his country, the Wallowa Valley, returned to its rightful owners. The struggle of the Nez Perces for the freedom they considered paramount in life constitutes one of the most dramatic episodes in Indian history
Dividing the reservation : Alice C. Fletcher's Nez Perce allotment diaries and letters 1889-1892 by Alice C Fletcher( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Dividing the Reservation, research is unearthed on ethnologist Alice Cunningham Fletcher, who was one of the first female federal Indian agents and helped write the Dawes General Allotment Act of 1887. The book presents details gleaned from Fletcher's written letters, official reports, diaries, scholarly documents, and magazine articles on federal Indian policies, particularly regarding the division of Nez Perce ("Nimiipuu") land. While her goal was to ensure that the Nez Perce retained the best land, there were several factors that inhibited attainment of that goal. This book helps clarify those factors and documents Fletcher's process and efforts. --Publisher
