Title

Captivity of the Oatman Girls: Being an Interesting Narrative of Life Among the Apache and Mohave Indians

Description

For all its moralizing and stilted prose, a century and a half later it remains a compelling account of a young girl’s life among the Indians that reveals as much about our own perceptions as it does about the fears and fascinations of our forebears.
--Bruce J. Dinges.
