From the book's Preface:
Many are the books that supply in fascinating element the adventures
of a unmarried or a number of heroes, or of a constrained zone of the
American frontiers. however it has been the notion of this
volume to give a vast view, embracing the extra celebrated
episodes of the existence led through the main famous pioneer explorers,
early settlers and courageous infantrymen who've gained contrast in
border war. it's definitely a beneficial activity to collect, in a
natural, chronological succession, files of these exciting
exploits, the recitals of which, oft repeated, have secured
their heroes immortality.
If or not it's objectd that lots of those worthies looked as if it would lack a
sufficient admire for the sacredness of human existence, their sur-
roundings can be remembered. in the event that they have been it appears too
ready with the knife or the set off, it could possibly simply because their very own
lives have been felt to be held cost effectively via many approximately them who have been
unrestrainable via legislation.
At least we've got glorified no gory outlaws, nor have we painted
in appealing shades the line to the detention center or the scaffold.
The chain is almost whole; now not fullyyt, for it was once no longer designed
to make a collection heritage of all border occasions of curiosity. the manager
aim has been to reveal the differing levels of an analogous lengthy
battle at the frontieers, fromm decade to decade, via
centuries, because the Indian races have been progressively driven again through
the march of the oncroaching white race, until it enveloped them
on both sides. it's most unlikely to offer, in one quantity, or, certainly,
in a small library, the lives of all americans who've met with
remarkable and exciting adventures with both brute or human
aborigines. however it is assumed that the commonest personality
of every one strongly marked interval has been chosen; and whereas
it can be impracticable to incorporate the entire tales with regards to such
men, it truly is notion that these incidents so much attribute of a
man and his instances, and owning the main curiosity to the
reader, were selected.
So many alternative volumes were consulted, that to refer
each assertion to the authority upon which it's established may
needlessly encumber the publication. whilst the unique possesses
special curiosity, as when it comes to Boone's Autobiography, or
Crockett's Diary within the Alamo, it's specifically quoted.
