Subject: This book looks at writers, from 1880-1940, who have studied Native Americans and suggests that despite the difference in when they were writing, these writers shared common conceptions of Indians and critiques of American culture and modernity. With a focus on the Anglo-American impulse to re-imagine Indians, the book begins with several men, born at mid-nineteenth century, who first encountered Indians in the Pacific North-West and Northern Plains of North America before conquest was complete. The book concludes with several women, born a generation later, who arrived in the Southwest, several centuries after the Pueblos had come to terms with their own conquest by Europeans. The chapters follow a geographical arc starting in the Pacific Northwest and moving out to the Northern Rockies, the Plains, California, and the Southwest.
