Helen Hunt Jackson: A Literary Life, by Kate Phillips, 408 pages, University of California Press; 1 edition (April 3, 2003) Novelist, travel writer, and essayist Helen Hunt Jackson (1830-1885) was one of the most successful authors and most passionate intellects of her day. Ralph Waldo Emerson also regarded her as one of America's greatest poets. Today Jackson is best remembered for Ramona, a romantic novel set in the rural Southern Californian Indian and Californio communities of her day. Ramona, continuously in print for over a century, has become a cultural icon, but Jackson's prolific career left us with much more, notably her achievements as a prose writer and her work as an early activist on behalf of Native Americans.
A Century of Dishonor, by Helen Hunt Jackson, 350 pages, Dover Publications (June 9, 2003) This monumental study chronicles the maltreatment of Indians as far back as the American Revolution.

A Separate Star: Selected Writings of Helen Hunt Jackson, edited by Michelle Burnham, 320 pages, Heyday Books (March 1, 2008) The complex legacy of a pioneer woman writer and advocate for Native American justice Best known for A Century of Dishonor and Ramona, Helen Hunt Jackson was a widely published writer in the mid-nineteenth century. Her work spanned two decades and ranged from many anonymous pieces of travel writing to poetry, romantic fiction, children s literature, and parenting advice. Ms. Burnham is interested in presenting a portrait of Jackson as a writer whose attitudes and beliefs on an array of subjects influenced her times. Her work is still compelling and clearly part of the long road to change that we are on today.
