5-0 out of 5 stars Thank you very much for offering exactly what I needed.
Several years ago, I read an article in the San Francisco Chronicle about this book. I was surprised, because I didn't even know that a book was written about how the indigenous peoples of California felt about the change from being governed by Mexico to being ruled by the United State of America. It was heartbreaking to read, but it's a must-read for everybody who lives in this country. May we never forget, so that it won't happen again.

5-0 out of 5 stars I recommend this seller
I got the book exactly came how the seller said it was.It was fast shipping and in great condition. Thank you so much.

1-0 out of 5 stars rating the physical book...not the story
This book is an excellent story.Lots of California history..or better..Alta California as it was known in the era.

BEWARE OF THE PHYSICAL BOOK !!!!! It is about 10"x11"...printing of the story is VERY!!!! pale.

I will keep this....but have ordered an older, normal paperback version...similar to the one I left accidentally at the San Diego airport.
Terrible size and print itself. Find another book of Ramona, by Helen Hunt Jackson....andbe ready to want to go to Old Town San Diego.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Story You Will Never Forget
I loved Ramona. It was the most beautiful story I have ever read. A wonderful look at California right after it came under the control of Americans. A story that has history, romance, prejudice, love, loss, and everything in between . Please read this book. I only regret that I never read it until I was in my thirties. This is Helen Hunt Jacksons masterpiece and the attention that it gave to the treatment of Indians is remarkable.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great historical romance
This book might be the only romance novel that I've read in my life, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.It painted a detailed portrait/landscape of what California was like in the late 1800's. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description
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. This long-overdue biography of Jackson's remarkable life and times reintroduces a distinguished figure in American letters and restores Helen Hunt Jackson to her rightful place in history.

Discussing much new material, Kate Phillips makes extensive use of Jackson's unpublished private correspondence. She takes us from Jackson's early years in rural New England to her later pioneer days in Colorado and to her adventerous travels in Europe and Southern California. The book also gives the first in-depth discussions of Jackson's writing in every genre, her beliefs about race and religion, and the significance of her chronic illnesses. Phillips also discusses Jackson's intimate relationships--with her two husbands, her mentor Thomas Wentworth Higginson, the famed actress Charlotte Cushman, and the poet Emily Dickinson. Phillips concludes with a re-evaluation of Ramona, discussing the novel as the earliest example of the California dystopian tradition in its portrayal of a state on the road to self-destruction, a tradition carried further by writers like Nathanael West and Joan Didion.

In this gripping biography, Phillips offers fascinating glimpses of how social context both shaped and inspired Jackson's thinking, highlighting the inextricable presence of gender, race, and class in American literary history and culture and opening a new window onto the nineteenth century. ...

Product Description

The most important woman in the history of southern California never lived.The eponymous heroine of Helen Hunt Jackson's popular 1884 novel Ramona, a half-Indian beauty raised on a wealthy Mexican rancho, nonetheless left an indelible imprint on southern California's landscape.Within a year of its publication, landmarks identified with Ramona's fictional life - her birthplace, her home, the site of her wedding, and her grave - became important, even canonical parts of a visit to southern California.One could take the Ramona freeway to town, cook like Ramona, and smell like Ramona.The novel's romanticized version of California's Hispanic past also inspired films, songs, musical instruments, jewelry, clothes, beer, wine, canned goods, collectibles, and a play that still draws thirty thousand people annually.Although historians and other writers have acknowledged Ramona's importance in the shaping of southern California's regional identity, there has never been an in-depth study of the origins and evolution of the "Ramona Myth" itself - until now.In Ramona Memories, Dydia DeLyser traces the myth's emergence within the context of the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century tourist industry.DeLyser explores the establishment of tourist attractions by fans of the novel.She details the stories of individual Ramona enthusiasts who, guided by numerous travel books and articles, wove the text of the novel and its lavishly described locations into their own lives, from pilgrimages to either of the two ranchos acclaimed as Ramona's home to Ramona-themed luncheons and hopeful honeymoon visits to the Wishing Well at her marriage place. Based on more than a decade of meticulous research, Ramona Memories reveals how a fiction - and the real places and products that it inspired - helped to makean idealized past visible, permeating southern California's social memory.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nice Read
This is an enjoyable book. It transports you back to a simpler time and does a good job at portraying the sense of adventure and wonder the Easterners had for the West during the mid 1800's.

3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting
After reading this book you will start seeing references to Ramona everywhere. It is kinda freaky when you really think about how big an impact the book had.

1-0 out of 5 stars Boring
I had read a good review of this book in the newspaper, and, since I was going to spend a week in Ramona, California, thought I should read it.
It is the most boring, dry book I think I ever read.About half the book is references to the writing.I finally gave up on it, and threw it in the trash.

5-0 out of 5 stars Examines the myth of Ramona in the regional tourist history
The heroine of Helen Hunt Jackson's 1884 novel Ramona started a trend of Ramona naming of landmarks which became part of many a tourist's journey to Southern California at the time. Surprisingly, Ramona Memories: Tourism And The Shaping Of Southern California is the first study to consider the influence of Jackson's fictional character and setting on the real world of Southern California. DeLyser examines the myth of Ramona in the regional tourist history, the establishment of attractions by fans of the novel, and tells of numerous Ramona enthusiasts who took elements of the novel and made them a part of their lives.
