Content descriptions

General Note: "Official Endorsed Indiana Bicentennial Legacy Project"--two pages prior to title page
Summary, etc.: This product sponsored by the Society of Indiana Pioneers is a unique historical resource. Emsley Johnson, Sr. the child of "log cabin parents," researched the Indiana frontier for many years. He wrote a novel based on his own family's experiences in the "Deep Forest" of Hoosier early days. Customs, stories, detailed descriptions of machinery used in the period 1800-1850 are woven into an appealing, alive story of a family from the Battle of Tippecanoe to the Civil War. The novel, originally written in 1950 and never published, was found in the family attic and has been edited by Hoosier historian Nancy Niblack Baxter to celebrate the Bicentennial of Indiana. It is an official Bicentennial project of the State of Indiana. To further distinguish this book, color reproductions of art works from the frontier period in the collection of the Indiana State Museum have been included.
