This is a book of its times: quaint turn-of-the-century writing for North American and European readers who have had little direct experience of native peoples, using overwrought phrasing and pop words of the era (notably 'paleface', 'redskin' and 'Happy Hunting Ground', which peaked in usage around 1900 according to Google ngrams).

Is more my own than ever was the real.
For others Fame

And yellow gold : I only claim
The shadows and the dreaming.

I can’t rate this one. I need to read more about Pauline’s life and context of the times.
