Excerpt from The Life and Adventures of Nat Foster: Trapper and Hunter of the Adirondacks

In writing this book, I have not catered to the novel reader or sensational book worm. A "plot" could have been introduced, and, weaving it into the fabric of the whole, the work could have been easily changed from the historical to the romantic, and a good novel made; so I have been told by a few of my friends, who have done me the kindness to examine the MSS., or have submitted to the ordeal of having some of it read to them. But it is in no sense a work of fiction. It is a faithful account of the life and adventures of a character familiar to sportsmen and others who frequent the Adirondacks. It has been my endeavor to collect and put in form the numerous stories and anecdotes told by one of the pioneers of New York State; though in my desire to vindicate the qualities of Nat Foster, I have given considerable not actually identified with his adventures, but having a bearing on his life.

The hardy race of men who followed the chase for a livelihood in the wilds of Northern New York, has passed away. With the men has gone the knowledge of many of their exciting adventures.
