Out of Bodie
Adam O’Kee is the half-Cherokee son of a prosperous brothel
owner from the gold rush town of Bodie, California. Young
and strong-willed, Adam is forced to grow up quickly after the
unexpected death of his beloved mother. Left without family,
Adam fl ees the little town to begin his life anew at the tender
age of eight.
Mathilda Jamison and her family are on their way to California
when they are left stranded with their covered wagon on
the vast plains east of the Sierra-Nevada. With few supplies
left and the danger of predators emerging from the prairie,
Mathilda and her family are rescued by Adam, who falls in
love with the sensitive and intelligent young woman.
Struggling to fi ght discrimination and the oppression of social
order, Adam and Mattie seek out a better life for themselves,
fi rst in the Sierras then on a ranch in the central valley town
of Modesto. Set from the beginning of the California Gold
Rush in the1860’s to the 1880’s, Out of Bodie is a tender love
story retold in the 1950’s by a now aging Mattie to her greatgrandson,
Little Adam O’Kee.
