Rate this:
Mrs. Jemison's account of her life with the Senecas--as told to upstate New York Doctor James Everett Seaver in 1824. The story has gone through countless editions, reprints, and retellings before the creation of this rigorous edition by feminist scholar of ethnicity June Namias. The extensive introduction and the bibliography put Jemison and Seaver's Narrative in its ethnographic, historical, and literary contexts, and offer new interpretations of the many earlier editions and of Jemison as a woman both white and American Indian.
