Product description

Published in 1895, this book recounts an adventure set in the early homesteading days of Ohio when new arrivals and indigenous Native American Indians had different notions of proper land use. Narrated in the first person by a young man born in Ohio of Irish immigrants, it is the family's story of venturing further west together with a brave run-away slave. The front and back covers contain some wear. The spine tail and head are worn with rubs and tears. There is a tear on the outer hinge. The pages are somewhat yellowed but there is no foxing except to the end-paper and front end-paper. There are some infrequent marks/stains on a couple of pages. There is an inscription on the first flyleaf. The book contains 22 attractive black and white illustrations.
