[About the Great Lives biography series]


Helen Hunt Jackson was one of the best known authors of her time. She wrote poetry, children’s books, travel journals, and novels.

After great sorrow and loss—the deaths of husband Edward Hunt and her two sons—in her native New England, Helen Hunt moved to Colorado Springs for her health and married William Sharpless Jackson in 1875.

Both her health and writing were rejuvenated as Colorado became her beloved home. Helen became a champion of social justice for Native Americans through her writing as she produced a long nonfiction work A Century of Dishonor and her more successful and influential novel Ramona.
