Book review

This illustrated children's book is historical fiction and was published in 1864.

Short Summary of the book's Preface:

In this volume we offer the reader a combination of two of
the most fascinating qualities which a book can possess.
It is almost strictly historical, and yet as marvelous as the
most romantic fiction. The sketches and incidents here
gathered are all authenticated; yet many of them, in their
wonderful interest and pathos, exceed the bounds of fancy.
They belong to two classes: those which are connected with
the Revolution, and those which chronicle the peculiar events
of our Frontier History. While they will absorb the attention
of the most intelligent reader, they are charmingly adapted
to attract young people, who will be both instructed and
delighted. Boys will find examples worthy of emulation, and
will learn to appreciate those traits of character which made
the glory and the progress of our young republic; while girls
may gain dignity of mind by contemplating the devotion,
courage and endurance of the women of those days.

An insight will be afforded into the customs of the Indians,
and into the manner of life of the early settlers, whose
dangers and difficulties, privations and calamities, are almost
incredible. Many of the most thrilling events in our national
history are herin related, along with the fearless adventures
of our brave pioneers, and the perils and catastrophes which
befel the families of those whose protectors were absent on
the field of battle, or whose cabins failed to find sufficient
defense in the rifles of their owners.
