2nd book in a row I have read on Olive Oatman. A lot of the material between this book and The Blue Tattoo overlap and both authors are good writers who have done extensive research, though I do think this book has an easier-to-follow narrative.

It also includes a lot more information on the dissident Mormon background of the Oatmans/5. While the book was good and was very interesting to read, the printing company made a big mistake and put a 40 page section into the book upside down, which made it a little hard to read.

Since this is a printing problem, I am cautious of ordering Cited by: 1. Oatmans has three large bedrooms on the first floor, one with an oak framed bay window.

All the bedrooms enjoy lovely views over the garden and equestrian facilities. There is a family bathroom and a family shower room. OUTSIDE Oatmans has extensive equestrian facilities to include a stable block comprising four stables, tack room and grooming.

These books were the one kind of books that featured women and were read by them. In captivity stories, women could demonstrate skills and attitudes outside their constricted culture.

The Oatman family (parents Royse and Mary Ann Oatman, and their seven children) were part of a wagon train bound for the west in Eventually due to differences in opinion, they split from their group and were traveling on.

Oatman is a village in the Black Mountains of Mohave County, Arizona, located at an elevation of 2, feet ( m).It began as a small mining camp when two prospectors struck a $10 million gold find inthough the vicinity had already been settled for a number of years.

The Yavapais use war clubs to kill the Oatmans. — Published in Captivity of the Oatman Girls by Royal B. Stratton — When Roys tells them that he doesn’t have any more, a Yavapai brazenly walks over to the wagon and climbs in the back, rummaging around inside.

When he comes out, he demands meat. In Olive Oatman was a thirteen-year old pioneer traveling west toward Zion, with her Mormon family. Within a decade, she was a white Indian with a chin tattoo, caught between cultures.

The Blue Tattoo tells the harrowing story of this forgotten heroine of frontier America. Orphaned when her family was brutally killed by Yavapai Indians, Oatman lived as a slave to her captors for a year /5(10). Oatman Chamber of Commerce P.O. Box Oatman, Arizona Phone: or   The Yavapais had taken the sisters, very much alive, to their village about 60 miles away, along with selected prizes from the Oatmans’ wagon.

Tied with ropes, the girls had been made to walk. Oatman, Arizona, located in the Black Mountains of Mohave County got its start as a mining camp after prospectors struck gold in the area in the earlyit became part of Route Often described as a ghost town, it doesn’t quite fit the category, but, close enough, considering that it once boasted o people and now supports just a little over people year-round.

Now, fast forward to and the attack on the Oatmans. Here is Olive's first person description of the attack: "Suddenly a defeaning (sic) yell broke up on us, the Indians jumping into the air, and uttering the most frightful shrieks, and at the same time springing toward us flourishing their war-clubs, which had hitherto been concealed.

The book went on to sell thousands of copies and became a best-selling work of its time. Olive and Lorenzo moved to New York with Stratton where she held lectures to promote the book. However, there were a lot of discrepancies in Olive’s account of her time spent in captivity.

On the sixth day out from Maricopa Wells, the Oatmans were overtaken by Dr. LeConte and Juan the Sonorian, riding on horseback. In less than a week, the two had visited Tucson—close to a mile run—collected specimens, returned to the Pima and Maricopa villages, then set out for the Colorado River where they ran right up on the rear tail gate of the Oatman wagon.

CHAPTER 1. The Family. The story of the Oatmans begins far from the southwestern desert—nearly a continent away, in the southwestern corner of Vermont, in a wooded valley where white settlers had, late in the eighteenth century, begun to clear timber and put up fences on land wrested from the Western Abenakis, a fishing and hunting people of the northeastern woods.

Stratton's narrative accompanied Olive and Lorenzo Oatman—the two survivors—on their speaking tours, but as independent scholar and writer Brian McGinty aptly reveals, the book and even the Oatmans' circuit tours inaccurately and falsely represented the massacre and the events that followed.

The book “Walter, The Orphan Donkey,” being published by Armagon Press of Los Angeles, tells the story of how Walter was found alone, lying on the ground cold and scared.
