#BookFaceFriday – “The Blue Tattoo” by Margot Mifflin
It’s the wild west with this week’s #BookFaceFriday.
Take a trip back in time with this week’s #BookFaceFriday, “The Blue Tattoo: The Life of Olive Oatman (Women in the West)” written by Margot Mifflin (University of Nebraska Press; Illustrated Edition, 2011.) The Nebraska Library Commission’s Collection is always growing, the Nebraska Publications Clearinghouse receives documents every month from all Nebraska state agencies, including the University of Nebraska Press (UNP). UNP books, as well as all Nebraska state documents, are available for checkout by libraries and librarians for their patrons.
“The Blue Tattoo is well-researched history that reads like unbelievable fiction, telling the story of Olive Oatman, the first tattooed American white woman. . . . Mifflin weaves together Olive’s story with the history of American westward expansion, the Mohave, tattooing in America, and captivity literature in the 1800s.”—Elizabeth Quinn, Bust
