Now in its 112th year of continuous publication, this extraordinarily popular novel weaves together romance, history, and a passionate protest against the oppression of Native Americans in the 1800s. Termed the Uncle Tom's Cabin of the southwestern Indians and the first protest novel of California, the story vividly portrays three cultures-Indian, Mexican, and Anglo-locked in combat. The reading by Boots Martin is fascinating listening both for its dramatic story and for its importance in history. The Ramona Pageant in Hemet, California, based on this romance, has played each year since 1923, reenacting the transition period between Mexican traditions and the new U.S. and state governments. 4 cassettes.
