Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1884, young Corabelle Fellows, well-educated and gently bred, overcame her parents' objections and left her upper-calss home in Washington D.C. to become a church-sponsored teacher among the Indian people of Dakota Territory. For the next several years, she taught English, art, and domestic science on Rosebud, Pine Ridge, and Cheyenne River reservations. In return for her friendship, the students affectionately gave her the name Blue Star. A keen observer, especially of Indian Women's and Children's lives, she learned much about their family traditions. Her teaching career ended in 1888 when she married Samuel Campbell, A Dakota mixed-blood.

Fifty years later, Corabelle recalled her experiences in Dakota land for Kunigunde Duncan, who turned them into this book, first published in 1938. Her story, with its personal perspective on the Indians struggles to keep their religion, lands, language, and way of life, will both intrigue and enthrall readers.

Synopsis:

In 1881, nineteen-year-old Corabelle Fellows, well educated and gently bred, overcame her parents' objections and left her upper-class home in Washington, D.C., to become a church-sponsored teacher among the Sioux and Cheyenne in Dakota Territory. Her story, with its personal perspective on the Indians' struggles to keep their religion, lands, language, and way of life, will both intrigue and enthrall readers.
