New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1926. Hardcover. "Every story in this book is true. In books out of print, in trustworthy histories, in letters and newspapers that are long out of date, the foundation for every story has been found. In spite of their privations and sufferings, some of the finest characters in American history were produced in those stirring days. The lessons they inculcated are not limited in time or in power" (preface). Stories address topics including ghosts and witches, pig stealing, fish, nicknames, Blackbeard, Colonel Smith, Indians, Arkansas pioneer life, Captain Samuel Brady, Georgia pioneer life, and more. Tan cloth boards with black title to spine and front cover. Slight browning to spine. Minor fraying to spine ends. Star stamp to rear free endpaper and a few pencil markings to endpapers, else clean. 252 pages. AME/102518. Very Good.
