I think this novel is a good reflection of past attitudes, (written in 1875 racism and sexism are on full display), and also serves to illustrate that we have not progressed nearly as far as one would hope. While I enjoyed the adventure story as much as I did in my early 20s, I found the social commentary and lack of progress to be unbearably sad and disappointing.

I‘ve been watching “Making It” on TV this week and realized that I like Nick Offerman‘s voice. I remembered that I had this audiobook narrated by him and hadn‘t read the book since high school or college. I‘m enjoying the narration, but boy is it problematic. I know, I know, one must consider the time in which it was written, but honestly, that just makes me feel worse about the history of the US. 🤦🏻‍♀️
