Her Father's Daughter [Annotated]
The publisher's special commentary chapter and the author's biography are included in this version.
Her Father's Daughter by Gene Stratton-Porter is one of the fiction best sellers in 1921. It is a fictionalized account of events that unfolded around a young Japanese student who enrolled in a Riverside high school in the early years of the century.
The novel offers a chilling look at the logic and emotional power of the manifest destiny ideology and white supremacist reasoning. The novel's heroine Linda is a high school student who becomes suspicious of Oka Sayye, the Japanese student who excels to the point of vying for valedictorian. Revealing Oka Sayye as a fraud- as a man in his thirties managing to pass as a teenager in order to infiltrate the school system and to seize top academic honors- becomes her mission.
