|From The Publisher*||A graceful biography that was a #1 national bestseller, Flint & Feather confirms Charlotte Gray's position as a master biographer, a writer with a rare gift for transforming a historical character into a living, breathing woman who immediately captures our imagination.|
In Flint & Feather, Charlotte Gray explores the life of this nineteenth-century daughter of a Mohawk chief and English gentlewoman, creating a fascinating portrait of a young woman equally at home on the stage in her "Indian" costume and in the salons of the rich and powerful. Uncovering Pauline Johnson's complex and dramatic personality, Flint & Feather is studded with triumph and tragedy, mystery and romance-a first-rate biography blending turn-of-the-century Canadian history and the vibrant story of a woman whose unforgettable voice still echoes through the years.
|Review Quote*||"An outstanding biography that has all the insight, colour, drama and interest of good, entertaining fiction." (The Globe and Mail)|
