In Mattaponi Queen, Pittsboro author Belle Boggs writes about Virginia's Mattaponi Indian reservation and its residents with meticulous anthropological detail. Reviewing the book in these pages, Adam Sobsey wrote, "The careful observance and description of local detail (visually reproduced by the book's cover, a collage of flora and oyster shells and rusty old things) is quite loving, as is Boggs' attitude toward her characters, who, like the land around them, are given a generous back story." Mattaponi Queen, which is named for a Tidewater-area boat, won the 2009 Bakeless Prize for fiction. —Sarah Ewald
