ABSTRACT
California's ruined missions did not attract much attention until the late 1800s. At that time, the U.S. government appointed Helen Hunt Jackson, a talented writer, to report on the Indians of California. After she toured the missions and ranchos, she turned upset about the way the Indians in California had been treated. In her view, their lands had been unfairly taken by U.S. settlers. When the government failed to solve the problem, she herself addressed it by writing a novel. Published in 1884, Ramona showed people the conditions under which Native Americans lived. This led to the formation of organizations which raised money to repair the missions. INSETS: I Madonnari;A Lesson in Soapmaking.
