Om Legends and Traditions of a Northern Cou
This vintage book contains a fascinating account of the history of north America, being an exploration of the legends and traditions of its early settlers. It constitutes an attempt to preserve for future generations of the author's family, information concerning the conditions of those who lived, struggled, and died in the formative years of American colonisation. "The Legends and Traditions of a Northern County" will appeal to those with an interest in American history, and it would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: "An Introduction", "Early Settlements And Settlers", "Local Nonclemature", "The Four Corners", "Ghosts-ours And Others", " A Graveyard Romance-a Tragedy And A Scandal", "Some Abandoned Houses", "The Red-the Black-and The White Man", "A Great Highway", "A Lost Atmosphere", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction.
