No date but believed circa mid 1840's to early 1850's. 16 pages with 8 illustrations, as well as an illustrated front cover of a Native American using a bow and arrow. Paper wrappers with a sewn binding. Rear cover has a list of the various series of books Rufus Merrill publishes. A description of Native Americans in a somewhat flattering light, mentioning their noted hospitality and kindness, humoruous anecdotes regarding their interactions with American leaders during the Revolutionary War, a brief description of their life in wigwams, mention of the chief Red Jacket, and a picture of the Oregon Indians. VERY GOOD condition with some darkening to the covers. Small number 2 in pencil near the title on the front cover. Light edgewear. The first letters of the last two lines of text on the rear cover missing, apparently part of the printing process. Inner text is clean and solid with a miniscule tear to the top corner of page 11, some darkening and some pages with text/illustration printed crooked on the pages. Previous owner's signature, David Crockett, on the inside front cover. Nice copy of this juvenile work, with attractive covers and interior and very little wear associated with use by children. In VERY GOOD condition.
