Inhaltsangabe: This vast work comprehends the first explorations, settlements, and Indian wars, as well as notes, anecdotes, and biographies of the Border scouts and pioneers, with copious memoranda and remarks concerning the military careers--mostly Revolutionary--of numerous Border settlers. Sown throughout the work are biographical sketches, genealogies, and thumbnail portraits of the early pioneers and settlers. With judicious impartiality the narrative surveys the depredations of Indian and pioneer alike, correcting a good many errors and misconceptions put by previous writers. Incident builds upon incident, anecdote upon anecdote, hair-raising account upon hair-raising account, until the whole incredible narrative of Trans-Allegheny frontier life becomes as evocative as if it had been lived at little remove.
Über den Autor:
Mourning Dove, the author of "Cogewea," was an Okanogan of eastern Washington. She lived as a migrant farmworker and, after ten-hour days in the hop fields and apple orchards, faithfully returned to the battered typewriter in her tent. Lucullus Virgil McWhorter, a respected and sympathetic student of Indian lore and history, encouraged her in her ambition to be a writer; finally she made her book a record of the folklore of the Okanogan tribe, a plea for the welfare of the half-blood, and above all the testimony to her own singleminded dedication.
