- Criticism, interpretation, etc.
- "His book probes the action-adventure heroine character in eighteenth and nineteenth-century American literature. Smith analyzes captivity narratives, war narratives, stories of manifest destiny, dime novels, and tales of seduction to reveal a long literary history of female heroes who step into more male-associated roles to win the day. Along the way, Smith examines such authors as Herman Mann, Emerson Bennett, Catherine Maria Sedgewick, Mercy Otis Warren, and Eden Southworth, among others"-- Provided by publisher.
