Excerpt from Five Years a Captive Among the Black-Feet Indians: Or, a Thrilling Narrative of the Adventures, Perils and Suffering Endured by John Dixon and His Companions, Among the Savages of the Northwest Territory of North America

During the time they were employed by the Company, they had frequently heard old trappers speak of the abundance of fur-bearing animals on the head waters of the Missouri, on the east side of the Rocky Mountains. And having collected all the information which they deemed necessary, in order to reach that region, they set out on their journey; and passing over many inci dents and difficulties which they encountered and sur mounted in the way, on the 12th of July following they reached what they supposed to be the country for which they started, and with alacrity set about preparing their camp for future use and comfort.

From this point, the many astonishing and tragical scenes in the life of John Dixon will commence. And after the reader has perused the pages of this work, he may well exclaim, Verily, truth is sometimes stranger than fiction I.
