Mourning Dove learned storytelling from her maternal grandmother, and from an elderly lady who lived with her family when she was young. She was influenced by pulp-fiction novels, which her adopted brother Jimmy Ryan let her read. Cogewea The Half Blood is a novel that depicts the plight of a young mixed race girl in 19th century Montana. The plot follows her as a rancher she hires forms a plot to seduce her and marry her for her supposed fortune.

When she eventually declines his request for marriage he takes her captive, and upon realizing she has no fortune to be inherited she leaves her to die in the wilderness. After being saved by a rancher named Jim she finds herself heir to part of her white fathers fortune after all, realizes her affections for Jim and marries him. The novel is a blend of western romanticism and traditional native american storytelling, evident in the focus on the beauty of natural landscapes and connection to the wild felt by the protagonist as an individual.

This novel serves to challenge our preconceptions of the literary canon through the identity of both the author and the protagonist.

Authors included in traditional canon are typically white men and women, the majority of which choose their protagonists to be aryan men or aryan women. Mourning Dove was an indigenous woman and also one of the first authors to center on not only a female, but a non-aryan protagonist.

In Cogewea The Half Blood the protagonist is neither a hero nor is she unique aside from her parentage. Similarly to Mill on the Floss , the story is meant to portray a typical experience of a young girl, in this case on the Western frontier, without any sugar coating or glamour added to her character.

Mourning Dove , Sho-pow-tan. One of the first known novels by a Native American woman, Cogewea is the story of a half-blood girl caught between the worlds of Anglo ranchers and full-blood reservation Indians; between the craven and false-hearted easterner Alfred Densmore and James LaGrinder, a half-blood cowboy and the best rider on the Flathead; between book learning and the folk wisdom of her full-blood grandmother. The book combines authentic Indian lore with the circumstance and dialogue of a popular romance; in its language, it shows a self-taught writer attempting to come to terms with the rift between formal written style and the comfort-able rhythms and slang of familiar speech. She lived as a migrant farmworker and, after ten-hour days in the hop fields and apple orchards, faithfully returned to the battered typewriter in her tent. Lucullus Virgil McWhorter, a respected and sympathetic student of Indian lore and history, encouraged her in her ambition to be a writer; finally she made her book a record of the folklore of the Okanogan tribe, a plea for the welfare of the half-blood, and above all the testimony to her own singleminded dedication.
