Reviews - What do customers think about The Ordeal of Olive Oatman: A True Story of the American West (Women of the Frontier)?

Shamefully Plagiarized Publication.... editors, this is ok with you?  Jul 26, 2008
The story was riveting, however, this is totally plagiarized from the original account published in the 19th Century that is in the public domain and available from Dover Books entitled,*Captivity of the Oatman Girls Among the Apache and Mohave Indians*. The author is listed in Rau's bibliography as "Royal B. Stratton," who wrote down the accounts of Olive Oatman and her brother, Lorenzo, although some editions put Lorenzo Oatman as a co-author. Other editions list Olive Oatman as co-author. If you look at the searchable Dover Books edition on Google Books, Rau's narrative follows Olive's own words nearly SENTENCE for SENTENCE, and then Rau pads her edition's bibliography with such titles as the Readers' Digest Edition *America's Fascinating Indian Heritage* from 1978. If this woman were a student in a freshman-level into to english comp class and pulled a stunt like this, she would be explaining herself to an academic dishonesty board at a disciplinary hearing.
 
Great Book!  Jul 18, 2001
This book was riveting. My son, who was seven years old at the time we read this book and I sat down one afternoon at 3:00 PM and turned the first page. We couldn't put the book down until 9:00 PM that night. We literally ran to the bathroom and ran back as quickly as possible to resume our reading. We laughed and cried. We kept track of Olive's journey on a map. This will be a book that we will always remember and cherish. I learned so much and I recommend this book for everyone.
