Description

Dear Boys: -Those of you who have read the earlier volumes in this series of backwoods stories may remember that I half-promised to follow the "Pioneer Boys on the Great Lakes" with a third volume. I now have the pleasure of presenting that story to you. In it you will renew your acquaintance with the two stout-hearted lads of the border, Bob and Sandy Armstrong, as well as several other characters you met before, some of whose names have become famous, and are recorded in the history of those early days that "tried men's souls." Besides this, there are some new characters introduced, who, I hope, will appeal to your interest. It was hardly to be expected that such a restless spirit as that of David Armstrong, the Virginia pioneer who built his log cabin on the bank of the beautiful Ohio, would long rest contented when wonderful stories constantly reached his ears concerning the astonishing fertility of the black soil, as well as the[vi] abundance of fur-bearing animals, to be found in the valley of the great river which De Soto had discovered-the mighty Mississippi; and, as you will learn, his first serious set-back caused him to start upon another long pilgrimage toward the "Promised Land."show more
