This second edition has been updated throughout and includes a greatly expanded selection of historical materials on castaway narratives and on the cultural context of colonial America.
Comments on the first edition:
"This adeptly edited page-turner of a novel is a fascinating descendant of Robinson Crusoe and an important example of the kinds of cross-Atlantic fiction being written to explore issues of colonialism, race, gender, nationhood, and human rights in the decade before the American Revolution." -- Paula Backscheider, Auburn University
"Graced by an uncommonly interesting as well as learned introduction, this edition of the virtually unknown novel The Female American will invigorate any collection of colonial American literature." -- Myra Jehlen, Rutgers University
