Camp-Fires of General Lee

The Block-House, the Camp-Fire
–AND–
THE WILDERNESS.


WHO of us has not been charmed by the tales of life and adventure on the frontier? What is more enjoyable than to listen to some old hero as he recounts the stirring incidents of the settlement of our Western States?

The crack of the rifle, the war-whoop of the red Indian in the depth of night, the whiz of the tomahawk, the camp-fire on the banks of the lonely river, the pursuit through the forest, where only the trained eye of the warrior or backwoodsman can detect the shadowy trail, the fierce hand-to-hand encounter, cunning against cunning, bravery against bravery, the brain of the pale-face against that of the dusky sachem,—these are elements in the history of our country which can never lose their attraction to Americans.

The series named below are original, brilliant and absorbingly interesting. They abound with graphic incident, breathing the very spirit of the woods, and are marked by a purity of style and purpose which will commend them to all lovers of interesting and genuine American literature.

The works are all written by Edward S. Ellis, whose productions have been widely translated and are among the most popular that have ever been published.
