ENGL 693 Spring 2018's Thoughts: "The year is 1756. In the northwestern part of South Carolina, the Crawley family lives on a farm in the valley. They enjoy largely peaceful relations with the local natives until a young Cherokee warrior, Saloueh, persists in his suit of the youngest Crawley, Hester. Already promised to another, Warren Stafford, Hester refuses him, stating that she could never love a man who is not white. Saloueh promises there will not be peace until she accepts his proposal. Incensed by her refusal and urged on by the French, he leads the Cherokee into war with the English and captures Hester. Almost immediately, she escapes with the help of Maowee, Saloueh’s former love and the daughter of the chieftain Attakula. Maowee, aggrieved by Saloueh’s behavior, vows that he will never possess Hester, and hides her in the mountains. Warren, with Hester’s brother, Matthew, search for her as Saloueh tries to re-capture her, but Maowee keeps her well-hidden until a Frenchman named Latinac discovers their mountain hideout. Like Saloueh, he falls in love with Hester, and is rejected. Latinac then attempts to trick Saloueh into another war with the English and succeeds. Saloueh removes the old chief, Attakula, from power, and leads the remaining Cherokee into an ill-advised war, devastating and scattering the Cherokee under the weight of superior British forces.Throughout all, Hester is kept in hiding, leading to a final confrontation between Saloueh, Warren, and Matthew. This copy of the text appears to be missing its final pages." Jennifer Jenkins, graduate student at NIU enrolled in ENGL 693, Spring 2018
