ENGL 693 Spring 2018's Thoughts: "Set in the idyllic colony of Jamestown, Virginia, The Pale-Face Squaw, by Clark Charles Dunning, is a story about the complicated lives and identities of Jamestown’s citizens. Braxton Keller, the brother of the colony judge, Spencer Keller, conspires with the colony’s diabolical physician, Roger Boyle, to exact revenge upon his brother and sister-in-law, Maud Keller. However, Doctor Boyle has covert designs for the village and the Boyle family, using Roger Boyle’s dark secret to further his own agenda. The story takes an interesting turn as Kee-na-too, a Shawnee Chief, enters the community with his bride, Rena. The two Shawnees work diligently to preserve peace between the colony and the neighboring tribe, but are thwarted. As the reader is keyed into the mysteries of the chief and his wife, the colony comes close to descending into a state of chaos, much to Doctor Boyle’s delight. Tension rise between Kee-na-too, Rena, the Shawnees, and the colony, leading to the revelation of secrets and identities unbeknownst to the colony at large. With one last arrow, the confrontation comes to an end, solving the pervasive mysteries within the lives of notable members of the Jamestown colony."--Natalie Santiago, graduate student at NIU enrolled in ENGL 693, Spring 2018
