Katie Gale: A Coast Salish Woman's Life on Oyster Bay
As LLyn De Danaan mines the historical record, we begin to see Gale, a strong-willed Native woman who cofounded a successful oyster business, then wrested it away from her Euro-American husband, a man with whom she raised children and who ultimately made her life unbearable. Steeped in sadness - with a lost home and a broken marriage, children dying in their teens, and tuberculosis claiming her at forty-three - Katie Gale's story is also one of remarkable pluck, a tale of hard work and ingenuity, gritty initiative and bad luck that is, ultimately, essentially American.
