About this Item

184pp, index, illustrated with numerous drawings by the author, yellow cloth with blue spine lettering, very bright and clean, in dust jacket that is moderately worn and soiled, and has a few very shallow chips at top edge, but looks very good in protective Brodart. Inscribed and signed by the author at front fly, "Best regards / to G____ B_____ / from a friend / of your brother / Sam / Bob Weems." Samuel Dale, of Virginia, b. 1772, d. 1841 was a Government scout in the late 1790s, and later a guide and Indian Fighter. He was a courier for General Andrew Jackson in 1814, and went on to serve in the first General Assembly of Alabama, and later the House of Representatives of Mississippi. From the DJ panel, "Sam Dale stands out as one of the greatest of the pioneer leaders. Blazing the trails across Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi by the outbreak of the War of 1812 he had become the most noted guide in that part of the country. A gigantic man, six feet two, square shouldered and raw boned, he bore a striking resemblance to his copperskinned antagonist of the woods. In hand to hand combat he had few equals. A hero of the Creek Indian uprising of 1813, on one occasion he led an attack on an Indian canoe on the Alabama River in which ten warriors were slain. As a dispatch rider for General Jackson during the New Orleans Campaign, he made a record ride through hostile wilderness, being the first man to bring news of the great victory to the east."
