About the Author
Jane Lamm Carroll is professor of history and women's studies at St. Catherine University and contributing author and co-editor of Liberating Sanctuary: 100 Years of Women's Education at the College of St. Catherine.
Daybreak Woman, a gripping American drama, is history made real. CHOICE

"In this deft biography, Jane Lamm Caroll guides us through a life rooted in the vital and expansive kinship networks that determined belonging, opportunity, conflict, and resilience for Dakota and mixed-ancestry community members in nineteenth-century Mni Sota Makoce. In a journey from the height of the fur trade, through the devastating war of 1862, and onward to the turn of a new century, we see the ways in which women's labor--cultural, spiritual, economic, diplomatic, and domestic--built and rebuilt worlds of meaning that persisted despite great upheaval and change. This is a vibrant and engrossing book."
Catherine J. Denial, author of Making Marriage: Husbands, Wives, and the American State in Dakota and Ojibwe Country

"The research in Daybreak Woman is rich, dense, and inclusive, and Jane Lamm Carroll writes a story that is highly personal and engaging. Learning about the lives of so many Dakota and Anglo-Dakota individuals and families forces readers to re-think what we thought we knew about the history of Mni Sota Makoce."
Colette Hyman, author of Dakota Women's Work: Creativity, Culture, and Exile
