´uŞ0 This brilliant tour-de-force narrates the life of a woman shipwrecked in the 1640s on´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 the shores´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 of modern-day New Jersey, axed in the belly, half-scalped and left for dead´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 by the Lenape´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 Indians, then nursed back to health by them and taken into the tribe.´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 And that's only the´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 beginning.
´uŞ0 Penelope Scambly Schott has carefully researched the facts and woven them into a poetic´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 page-turner. She cites her sources, provides a glossary and, best of all, indicates what is´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 fact and´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 what is fiction. Her technique is well chosen: the interior monologues, mostly´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 of the heroine,´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 Penelope Kent van Princis Stout, and, in a few poems, those of her´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 namesake, the author. A´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 more distant Penelope, the wife of Odysseus, is also invoked.
´uŞ0 The poems take us directly into the mind and heart of a strong woman, who is´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 extraordinary´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 partly because she thinks she is ordinary. With craftsmanship and´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 feeling, Schott has limned´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 unforgettable characters whose lives transcend the mostly´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 ignoble history of settler-Native´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 American relations.
´uŞ0 PENELOPE KENT VAN PRINCIS:
´uŞ0 Some records show original name (in Holland) to be Van Printzen. Also noted that her´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 name is´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 listed in some places as Penelope Kent Van Princin. Another source lists her´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 maiden name as´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 Thomson and she married a Kent van Princis in 1642. He was killed´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 by the Indians on the´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 beach in Sandy Hook, New Jersey.
´uŞ0 Fact 1: Believed to be 1st white woman to set foot on Monmouth Co. soil

´uŞ0 Penelope was born in Amsterdam, Holland, circa 1620/22, the daughter of a Baptist´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 preacher´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 who had fled Sheffield, England, for religious reasons. When American´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 colonization made it´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 possible for the English expatriates to leave Holland they, wanting´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 their children to retain their´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 Englishness, came to the New World. She married shortly´uŞ0 ´uŞ0 before leaving Holland in 1640.´uŞ0
