One of the 1st recognized novels through a local American girl, Cogewea (1927) is the tale of a half-blood lady stuck among the worlds of Anglo ranchers and full-blood reservation Indians; among the craven and false-hearted easterner Alfred Densmore and James LaGrinder, a half-blood cowboy and the simplest rider at the Flathead; among booklet studying and the people knowledge of her full-blood grandmother. The e-book combines actual Indian lore with the condition and discussion of a favored romance; in its language, it indicates a self-taught author trying to come to phrases with the rift among formal written variety and the comfort-able rhythms and slang of regular speech.
