Studies in American Naturalism vol. 6, no. 1 anxiety and the persistent "need to know" their origins if they are to be "claimed," and thereby find a stable place within their families and the social order. While as a scholar of multi-ethnic literatures in the United States, I found myself most excited by the work being done by Callahan and Jerng, I learned from all three, and the conflicts these texts describe go to the heart of the debates that are animating not only adoption studies but American literature as a whole--one in which naturalist themes play a central role. And it offers a new mirror for families like mine that are shaped by the fictions and realities of adoption in America and its globalized reach. Lori Askeland, Wittenberg University An Island Cabin, by Arthur Henry, with an afterword by Stephen Jones. Introduction by Maggie Walker. Mystic, CT: Flat Hammock Press, 2010. x +354 pp. Paper. $19.95. While Arthur Henry may be best known for his close connection to Theodore Dreiser, the recent edition of his 1902 work, An Island Cabin, makes a strong case that Henry is worthy of consideration in his own right.
