Overview

Guilds (humanities, U. of Arkansas) and Hudson (retired, anthropology, U. of Georgia), in selecting the writings of novelist Simms (1806- 1870), have considered both literary merit and ethnohistorical importance. The stories, essays, poetry, and other writings collected demonstrate Simm's views of the place of the American Indian in society and history. It was a white elite view, but Hudson argues his agenda was more admirable than most. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
