Summary
In 1851, thirteen-year-old Olive Oatman was orphaned when her family was killed by Yavapai Indians. She lived as a slave for a year before being traded to the Mohave, who adopted her. Oatman remained in Mohave society for five years until, at nineteen, she was ransomed back to white society. Drawing on historical records--including letters and diaries of Oatman's friends and relatives--Mifflin examines Oatman's life from her childhood to her ransom to her later years as a wealthy banker's wife in Texas. Oatman's blue chin tattoo was a cultural symbol that evoked both the imprint of her Mohave past and the lingering scars of westward expansion; but it also served as a reminder of her deepest secret, which Mifflin explores here: Olive Oatman never wanted to leave Mohave society. --
