Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments Ramona, Helen Hunt Jackson, 1884, United States, NOVEL

"...She spent six months researching and writing A Century of Dishonor, which describes the treatment of Native Americans by the United States government, then mailed a copy to every United States Senator...Ramona succeeded where A Century of Dishonor did not; it achieved best-seller status and focused attention on an issue many had been unaware of..."

(E.B., p. 362)
