Ramona is an American novel written by Helen Hunt Jackson in 1884 Who is Helen Hunt Jackson Well it s good you waited until now to ask a few days ago I would have had no idea Now I do Helen Hunt Jackson was a writer who became an activist on behalf of Native Americans and how they were treated by the United States government If they were treated anything like what she wrote in the novel our government was horrible to these people Way back when Jackson was a little girl she attended the Ipswich Female Seminary and the Abbott Institute a boarding school in New York City run by Reverend John Stevens Cabot Abbott I have no idea whether the Ipswich Female Seminary and the Abbott Institute are the same place or two different places and I didn t look them up yet I also didn t look up the man who ran the place or places to see why his name is so long what I did find out is that she was a classmate of Emily Dickinson and the two wrote to each other for the rest of their lives When she was 22 she married an Army Captain Edward Bissell Hunt they had two sons one of them died though and so did her husband he was killed in an accident that occurred while he was experimenting with one of his own marine inventions I wish I had information than that on what he was doing The second son also died of diphtheria two years later She isn t having very much luck with her family members her mother died when she was fourteen and her father when she was seventeen Now that she was all alone with nothing else to do I suppose she began to write poetry and she traveled in Europe writing But of course something else had to go wrong and she moved to Colorado Springs seeking a cure for tuberculosis an awful lot of people seemed to have tuberculosis in the 1800s Finally something went right and she met and married William Sharpless Jackson a wealthy banker and railroad executive I find it interesting that she kept her first husband s last name and added her second husband s last name behind that I wonder what her husband thoughtThen in 1879 she went to a lecture in Boston I have no idea what she is doing in Boston the lecture is by Chief Standing Bear of the Ponca Tribe He described the forcible removal of the Ponca from their Nebraska reservation and transfer to a reservation in Oklahoma where they suffered from disease harsh climate and poor supplies I didn t know Oklahoma had harsh climate She was so upset by what she heard she decided to take up their cause and started investigating and making known the government misconduct She did all kinds of things raising money for them having heated exchanges with federal officials over the injustices committed she exposed the government s violation of treaties she documented corruption of agents military officers settlers anyone who encroached on and stole the Indians land And it seems like there were a lot of people who stole the Indians land and that is what the book is about that plus the story of Ramona and the man she falls in love with Alessandro and all those around the coupleIn the story we are in Southern California right after the Mexican American War which apparently the Mexicans lost because there are an awful lot of Americans showing up What are called Americans in this story I really hope isn t what all Americans were like back then There were few of them who weren t horrible Our heroine in the story is Ramona her mother was Native American I can t remember who her father was She is raised by Se ora Gonzaga Moreno the sister of Ramona s deceased foster mother Se ora Moreno has raised Ramona as part of the family giving her every luxury but only because Ramona s foster mother had reuested it as her dying wish Our dear Se ora can t stand Ramona supposedly because of Ramona s mixed Native American heritage I think she is just mean That love is reserved for her only child Felipe Moreno whom she adores She adores him so much it is creepy Se ora Moreno is Mexican of Spanish ancestry although where they live in California has recently been taken over by the United States She hates the Americans everyone hates the Americans after awhile I hate the Americans who have cut up her huge ranch because that s what they do I feel sorry for her and her son Felipe but I still don t like her One day a group of Native American sheep shearers arrive at the ranch she hires them every year and the head of the shearers is Alessandro the son of the chief of the tribe I forget his name I found it interesting that he was Catholic I didn t think Native American Indians were Catholic but some are Of course just about everyone in the novel is it is interesting how many things only get done or don t get done until the priest is asked or until a certain Saint is prayed to There are Rosaries and statues and crosses all over the place I learned a lot about the different Saints Then Alessandro sees Ramona and falls in love with her he tries not to let it show being an Indian and poor but it wouldn t be much of a love story if she never knew he loved her She eventually falls in love with him Felipe is also in love with Ramona and Margarita also loves Alessandro it doesn t matter who she is So once Se ora Moreno and Felipe find out that Ramona and Alessandro love each other do you really think they will allow a girl raised by them like a daughter and sister so they say are going to let her marry an Indian And if she does marry him where will they live the main thing going on in the book during all this is the Indians getting thrown off their land entire villages including the one that Alessandro is from are just thrown out and made to leave to go who knows where and no one cares No American cares anyway and if they don t go they just shoot them So they move on and find another little village and build houses and plant crops and the Americans come and well the same thing happens over and over until the book is over and I don t know where the Indians ended up but wherever it is what happened to them wasn t right And for me what happened to Ramona and Alessandro didn t matter at all Remember all those black and white Westerns where the Indians rode around on horses killing everyone with their bows and arrows and tomahawks I ll be thinking of Ramona and Alessandro and their village the next time I see one of them Oh here are some of the things I remember the most It was the way in the Hyer family to make the best of things they had always possessed this virtue to such an extent that they suffered from it as from a vice There was hardly to be found in all Southern Tennessee a contented shiftless ill bested family than theirs But there was no grumbling Whatever went wrong whatever was lacking it was jest like aour luck they said and did nothing or next to nothing about it Alessandro I am almost afraid to tell you what I have done I took the little Jesus out of the Madonna s arms and hit it Did you never hear that if you do that the Madonna will grant you anything to get him back again in her arms Did you ever hear of itNever exclaimed Alessandro with horror in his tone Never Mejella How dared youOh I have heard many times women tell the Senora they had done this and always they got what they wanted Never will she let the Jesus be out of her arms than three weeks before she will grant any prayer one can make Felipe went to the Madonna s picture and falling on his knees began to pray as simply as if he were alone The Indians standing on the doorway also fell on their knees and a low whispered murmur was heardFor a moment Aunt Ri looked at the kneeling figures with contempt Oh Lawd she thought the pore heathen prayin ter a picter Then a sudden revulsion seized her I allow I ain t gwine ter be the unly one out er the hull number thet don t seem to hev nothin ter pray ter I allow I ll jine in prayer tew but I shan t say mine ter no picter And Aunt Ri fell on her knees and when a young Indian woman by her side slipped a rosary into her han Aunt Ri did not repulse it but hid it in the folds of her gown till the prayers were done It was a moment and a lesson Aunt Ri never forgotThe novel was so popular it had than 300 printings and attracted many tourists to Southern California who wanted to see places from the book I don t want to see the places in the book it is too depressing I m not sure how many stars to give it I didn t care what happened to Ramona and Alessandro in fact they got on my nerves at times I certainly didn t care about Se ora Moreno and her son giving in to her for everything I wouldn t read it again for any of them and the Indian parts were so sad I wouldn t read it again for that but even though when I was stuck in the RamonaAlessandroFelipe stuff at the ranch I almost uit reading when it got to the Indian villages I couldn t put it down I ll give it 3 stars maybe 35 On to the next book happy reading

As three stars indicates I liked this book Actually I wish I could give it 35 I m glad I read it but I don t think I could do it again as it was so sad I can t believe I d never heard of it before especially since I was a born and raised until I was 12 in San Diego I guess in grade school they don t begin yet to touch on the injustices done to the Native Americans and even to the Mexicans We were still just learning what a mission was and some Spanish words But I was in SD this spring and took time to go by myself to the San Diego History Museum in Balboa Park and there on a placard I read a bit about the dreadful history of the Native Americans in Southern California along with mention of this famous book that fictionalized it I didn t actually expect the Seattle library to have it but they did It s a very long book and I admit to skimming the last 100 pages or so because it was just so damned depressing and I could see what was coming But the first 300 was a pleasure Now I ve read a number of reviews that call the book propaganda or boringly stilted and I take exception to the grumbling Of course it s propaganda Helen Hunt Jackson gave the best years of her life trying to convince the American gov t to ease up on the Indians esp with her book A Century of Dishonorand finally in desperation she wrote Ramona as a way to move people s hearts She had hoped that Romona would be the Uncle Tom s Cabin of California natives Sadly her wildly popular novel although printed in 300 editions adapted for 4 films and turned into a play that has run every year in CA since 1923 was taken as of a lady s romance than a political statement Addressing the other common complaint of course it s stilted It was written in 1884 Did people honestly expect a breezy modern style Given the intent the period and the writer I think the book is wonderful and I would give it stars if it hadn t been so depressing for me personally As an historical document I think it s still important to read It s out of copyright so it s available for free online I will say that Jackson s book helped change the way people viewed the Native Americans of S CA and it created an emormous influx of tourist dollars into the area when the railroad finally went there Everyone wanted to see where Ramona lived married died She was sort of the Harry Potter of the turn of the century Now if only the letters between Jackson and her friend Emily Dickenson still survived that would be real reading They were born 2 months apart in Amherst went to school togther and wrote letters to one another all their lives
