Summary
  • "A biographical novel in verse of a half Native American, half African American female sculptor, Edmonia Lewis, working in the years right after the Civil War"--
  • Edmonia Lewis never spoke or wrote much about her past, and the stories that have come down through time are often vague or contradictory. The daughter of an Ojibwe woman and an African-Haitian man, she had the rare opportunity to study art at Oberlin, one of the first schools to admit women and people of color. She lost her place after being accused of poisoning and theft, despite being acquitted of both. She moved to Boston and eventually Italy, where she became a successful sculptor. This novel-in-verse is inspired by both the facts and the gaps in her history
