Kind of one of those historical books where a five-minute conversational summary is actually more interesting than all the miniscule details. All I kind of needed to know was that she existed, a couple pages about what happened to her, and the feminist/anti-feminist, anti-Native-American revisionism around her "history," and that's plenty. The book itself was nothing bad, it just wasn't mind-blowingly fascinating or anything in how it expounded upon all of the above.
