This is a rare mid-19th-century collection of selected incidents from the long, often violent history of conflicts between American Indians and the white settlers who usurped their tribal lands. THRILLING ADVENTURES AMONG THE INDIANS was written by John Frost, one of the most prolific historian authors of the pre-Civil War era. This book features numerous illustrations, including a hand-colored plate at the front. The following narratives have been carefully compiled from a large mass of material which has been accumulated during the many years which the author has devoted to the study of American history.They comprise the incidents which were considered most striking and remarkable, and best calculated to afford the reader an adequate idea of the Indians, their peculiar modes of warfare, and their general character. It is a remarkable fact that the Indians, as a mass, remain now nearly in the same state as they were found by the first discoverers of the New World. Unlerss an enlightened public sentiment shall be awakened, and the benevolent exertions of the American people shall be interposed to civilize and reclaim these tribes, there is every reason to fear that they will ultimately become extinct; so that a century hence not a living representative will remain of all the powerful nations which formerly possessed this country. Captivity and Escape of Mrs. Frances Scott, of Washington County, Virginia.
