Baltimore: The Johns Hopkins Press, 1937. Hard Cover. Raphael Semmes (1890 - 1952) had a Ph.D from Johns Hopkins University and a law degree from Harvard. "This narrative is an account of how the early colonists faced and endured some of these hardships and dangers. With the woods of Maryland as a background, it is a story always dramatic, sometimes written in blood. The early settlers relate their own experiences in the picturesque language of the seventeenth century. If at times their language seems crude, so were the conditions in Maryland which they faced. To omit descriptions, or phrases, to satisfy the sensitive reader would not be fair to the people of whom this account is written" (foreword).
