Content descriptions

General Note:
Contains the original author's preface from April 1950, as well as a contemporary preface by Martha Susan (Johnson) Batt from April 2015.
Endorsed by the Indiana Bicentennial Commission as an official Bicentennial Legacy Project, and published on the 100th anniversary of The Society of Indiana Pioneers.
Summary, etc.:
This "lost historical novel" was by a former leader of the Society of Indiana Pioneers, attorney and historian Emsley W. Johnson, Sr. who was Society president from 1940 to 1946. The intriguing story draws on experiences of his ancestors and relates challenges and triumphs of settlers between 1811 and 1861.
Originally written in 1950, the manuscript for this novel was discovered 65 years later by Johnson's granddaughter. Based on the lives of Johnson's ancestors, it provides a glimpse into pioneer life in the Indiana Territory from 1811, through statehood as Indiana in 1816, up to events in the Civil War and the jubilee year of 1866.
