Overview

Danny enters the story in a basket—the traditional basket left on a door step. Hank Walters, coming home late, stumbles over the basket, and Danny is taken into the blacksmith's home and kept there, largely because Hank and his wife Elmira find their disagreement over his naming so engrossing.

Danny is about eighteen when he runs away with Dr. Kirby, discoverer, manufacturer and proprietor of the Siwash 1ndian Sagraw, nature's remedy for all ills. From then on he leads a variegated career as Indian or Patagonian wild man as the case may require. Thru "Illinoise," Ohio and Iowa, and the far South, his travels take him, but always his fate is bound up with that of Dr. Kirby— who turns out to be not Dr. Kirby at all— and in the culmination of the secret romance in the doctor's life he plays an unexpected and very important part.

Possibly if 'Danny's own story were told in a somewhat modified dialect it would read more easily and perhaps more satisfactorily, but even as it is, it is a lively autobiography, with a number of unusual situations offered, all interesting, and several of them very droll indeed.

...From editorial review at the time of it's initial publication:

“The man who adds to the common stock of innocent enjoyment is indeed a public benefactor, and when with this he combines a homespun philosophy and an optimism which makes the World look brighter, he has more than doubled the obligation. All this has been embodied into ‘ Danny’s Own Story.’ Its spontaneity is one of its most characteristic charms. It is a success already and the world seems brighter since it came.”
