Perhaps best known as the mother of Robert Owen, the first United States senator from Oklahoma, Narcissa Owen led a no less illustrious life during a time when she and her fellow Cherokee had few chances for success. Owen's memoirs recount the story of a supremely talented painter, teacher, and philanthropist who did much to advance the cause of women as well as Native Americans.
