Arguments in favor of ancient Hebrew origins for Native Americans. This work is filled with fascinating anecdotes of Native American life and culture taken from Ethan Smith, Mordecai M. Noah, James Adair, Elias Boudinot, Charles Crawford and a host of other sources, interspersed with Mrs. Simon's own comments. The book is an interesting, self-assured synthesis of standard sources of the day. - Grunder, Mormon Parallels - 385. Howes - 489.
