Overview

Excerpt from Lights and Lines of Indian Character, and Scenes of Pioneer Life

The title would indicate this to be a work of fiction. Be it known, however, that much of it is literally true, and all has its origin in fact. There are very few characters portrayed which are not true types of the once living originals.

The Indian Legends have been carefully gathered from the oral registers of the last hoary chiefs of a perishing race. Extravagant and unreal they may appear to us - yet they believed them.

The Pioneer Tales and Anecdotes are from the lips of those aged men of a past generation, many of whom have long since passed away, and their few surviving companions, who very soon must surrender their feeble title to mortality.

Some few of these pieces have previously appeared in the New York "Commercial Advertiser," and other papers. Some of them may be found in the "History of Onondaga." But most of them are now for the first time published.
