LONG HUNTER: The Story of Big-Foot Spencer

This story is laid on the Tennessee frontier in 1777 in about the same country as that in Macmillan's The Hickory Limb. Big-foot Spencer stayed on in the wilds all alone by his own choice and in hopes of winning a bet. With Midnight, his big dog, he lived in a sycamore tree near a lick. He stayed off for six months, only seeing some Frenchmen and Cherokees who caught him while he was shooting geese. Even for a man of gigantic stature and strength life was anything but easy under such conditions.
