Editorial Reviews


“The book’s great strengths are its close readings of understudied materials pertaining to an understudied topic. . . . Tinnemeyer makes a valuable contribution to the field with perceptive analyses and creative archival work. . . . [She] has brought together an exciting group of texts, admirably parsing them from her readers.”—Western American Literature
(Marissa Lopez Western American Literature) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Most scholarly studies of captivity narratives focus on the tales from New England. This book significantly extends the range to analyze captivity narratives in the Southwest, during the time of the Mexican-American War.
