Junge Dame behauptet sich in der Wildnis: Als Boston Jane beschliesst "Miss Hepplewhites Akademie für junge Damen" zu besuchen, weiss sie noch nicht, dass die so erworbenen Kenntnisse ihr später in der Wildnis bei Waldläufern und Indianern nicht viel nützen. Dort in der Wildnis soll sie ihren Verlobten treffen. Der ist aber nicht zur Stelle, als Jane nach langer beschwerlicher Schiffsreise eintrifft. Als ihr Verlobter endlich auftaucht, hat Jane ihr viktorianisch-dümmliches Korsett buchstäblich abgestreift und ist zu einer mutigen, selbstständig handelnden jungen Frau geworden. Als sie sich getraut ihrem Verlobten William den Laufpass zu geben, weil der unterdessen aus geschäfltichen Gründen eine Indianerin geheiratet hat, kann sie auch in Sachen Liebe neue Wege gehen. Die spannend erzählten Gegensätze aus der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts beruhen auf wirklichen Geschehnissen. Ab 12 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Doris Hunziker.
