SETH JONES - The Book That Started It All Described as the "perfect dime novel" of thrilling frontier adventure, this story literally kick-started the dime novel phenomenon of the late 19th century and the career of prolific American author Edward S. Ellis! Written over 150 years ago, this book was one of Abraham Lincoln's favorites! Seth Jones sold 60,000 copies in its first week and 450,000 copies in its first six months ... staggering numbers for the time! After years of being quite difficult to find, this publication of "Seth Jones or the Captives of the Frontier" finally makes this groundbreaking book easily available! NOTE: This edition of "Seth Jones or The Prisoners of the Frontier" includes a publisher's preface along with the original text plus scans of illustrations originally part of a special 1910 edition. Curated for quality by Edward S. Ellis' great-great grandson, this book has been extensively reviewed in an attempt to remove imperfections introduced by the transcription and/or digitization process. Though best efforts have been made, this book might have an occasional error that should not impede the reading experience. We believe this work is culturally important and have reissued it in print as part of a continuing commitment to the preservation of the work of prolific American author Edward S. Ellis.

About the Author:

Edward S. Ellis is best known for his youth-targeted fictional works in the American dime, pulp, and series novel genre like "Seth Jones or The Captives of the Frontier" (described as the "perfect dime novel" of thrilling frontier adventure -- estimated 60,000 copies in its first week and 450,000 copies in its first six months), "The Huge Hunter or The Steam Man of the Prairies" (first U.S. science fiction dime novel) and the series featuring Native American: Deerfoot. Later in life he turned to more serious work, writing accounts of historical events and biographies, mostly for adults. He passed away in Maine in 1916 at the age of 76 after authoring hundreds of books that he produced by his name and by a number of pseudonyms including James Fenimore Cooper Adams, Captain Bruin Adams, Boynton M. Belknap, Lieut. Ned Hunter, Charles E. Lasalle and Seelin Robins. For more details on the life, career and books of Edward S. Ellis, visit www.EdwardSEllis.com
