First published in 1881, Helen Hunt Jackson's A Century of Dishonor is a classic account of the U.S. government's flawed Indian policy and the unfair and cruel treatment afforded North American Indians by expansionist Americans. Jackson wrote the book as a polemic to 'appeal to the hearts and conscience of the American people', who she hoped would demand legislative reform from Congress and redeem the country's name from the stain of a 'century of dishonor'. Her efforts, which constitute a landmark in Indian reform, helped begin the long process of public awareness for Indian rights that continues to the present day.
