9781440071744: Trappers of New York: A Biography of Nicholas Stoner & Nathaniel Foster (Classic Reprint)

PREFACE. " To be ignorant of all antiquity," says a popular writer,"" "is a mutilation of the human luind; it is early associations and local circumstances which give bent to the mind of a people from their infancy, and insensibly constitute the nationality of genius." This is a truism which can not be contravened, and although the world is now full of books for good or ill, yet I venture to add another. Well, as this is only a duodecimo, may I not bespeak for it a little share of public favor? For if it is but a small volume, it has nevertheless required considerable time and care to collect and arrange its luinutire. The author does not claim for it a place among classic works, which sparkle with literary gems; but he does claim for it the merit of candor. In a work purporting to be one of truth, he would not impose upon the credulity of others, ,vhat he could not believe himself. · 1. D'!sraeli. This book has been written with the view of giving the reader

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Trappers of New York: Or a Biography of Nicholas Stoner Nathaniel Foster Not a few such are now in the writer s possession. They are generally of a personal and anecdotal na ture, and many of them were noted down from the lips of men whose heads are whitened by the frosts of time, or are now laid beneath the valley-clods. If such an anecdote should still linger in the mind of a reader of this page, or any old paper of interest remain in his or her keeping, that individual would confer a favor by communicating the same to my address. Our Revolution is destined, in its fullness of benefit, to emancipate the world from tyranny; and every minute incident relating to that great struggle is not only worthy of record, but highly important, for the proper understanding of its cost to the young.
