ENGL 330 Spring 2018's Thoughts: "The main characters in this novel are Archibald Turner, a white man; Christian, a Native American; and Shining Star, who is initially presented as a Mohegan maiden, but later revealed to be Caucasian with the birth name Arabella. The story takes place in America, but the exact location is never specified. The novel’s plot revolves around rescue: Archibald rescues Christian, Christian rescues Archibald, Archibald rescues Shining Star, and Shining Star rescues Archibald. The villains of the story are the Narragansetts, who terrorize everyone outside of their tribe. Archibald falls in love with Shining Star, but does not marry her until her true race is revealed. The only Native American presence in the novel is that of Shining Star, who is described as beautiful, noble, graceful, buoyant, and kind. The novel shows how powerful interracial friendship can be and how people of different races, backgrounds, and languages can unite for a common cause."--James L. Bowman, undergraduate student at NIU enrolled in ENGL 330, Spring 2018
