Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Thrilling Adventures Among the Early Settlers: Embracing Desperate Encounters With Indians, Tories, and Refugees; Daring Exploits of Texan Rangers and Others, and Incidents of Guerilla Warfare; Fearful Deeds of the Gamblers and Desperadoes, Rangers and Regulators of the West and Southwest; Hunting Sto But a brief period has elapsed since this continent was peopled by a new and daring race; a race who sought a refuge from tyranny and oppression, among these American wilds; for civil and religious liberty; for liberty of conscience to worship their Creator according to their own conceptions of heaven s revealed will. Among savage beasts and more savage men, liable at any moment to meet death in its most appalling forms, they yet shrunk not from the burdens they had assumed, until their efforts were crowned by a glorious and final triumph. And now, from the old world and the new, a vast tide of emigration swept in upon the immense prairies of the west, and the fertile fields of the south; a heterogeneous mass of elements; the enterprising and virtuous seeking to improve their condition; the vicious of all grades desiring to escape from the terrors and trammels of the law. Between such opposing interests and passions, collisions were inevitable, and fearful have been some of the deeds that stain the history of these localities. In every new country, there is an era of strife, turbulence, and general combat! a state of nature which is always a state of war, when sanguinary crimes provoke still more sanguinary punishments, and savage fury, and brutal force inaugurate a reign of universal terror. It is peculiar to no geographical section, but applies with more force to the west and southwest than elsewhere. Petty villains and noted criminals - gamblers, counterfeiters, murderers and others, who have outraged the laws of older localities, have here sought a comparatively secure retreat, and inviting fields in which to continue the perpetration of their crimes. But happily in all instances, the phenomenon is of brief duration; the evil soon runs its course. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
