Comments

Superbly illustrated with Copper-plate etchings and line drawings. "In presenting this History of the Indian Tribes to the American public we wish to say there are two classes of people whom we do not aim to please- those who, reading the Leatherstocking tales, are apt to base their ideas upon them, and regard the 'noble red man' as but little lower than the angels; and the frontiersman who having, perhaps, witnessed massacres, can see no good trait in Indians, but regards them all as demons." - the author.
