Religion, Idealism, and African American Autobiography in the Northern Plains: Era Bell Thompson's "American Daughter"
Cole, Kevin; Weins, Leah
Great Plains Quarterly, v23 n4 p219-229 Fall 2003
Era Bell Thompson's "American Daughter", published in 1946 by the University of Chicago Press, is an autobiographical account of an African American woman who comes of age on the plains of North Dakota in the early twentieth century. It deserves to read and included in Great Plains studies because it recounts one of the rarest of American experiences: growing up African American on a homestead in the Northern Great Plains in the first two decades of the twentieth century.
