WAR-BELTS OF PONTIAC by William H. Bunce


Email this review


Last Fall we were very keen about Chule, a story of Indian life in early Tennesses, unusual and well told, though extremely hard to sell. This is by the same author, with pictures by I.B. Haselton. Though full of fighting and action, it seems pretty run-of-the-mill Indian stuff. The hero is a young white boy, a natural woodsman, who can talk many native dialects and can carry messages to help save the British garrisons from Pontiac's wrath. At an Indian gathering he sees braves from many tribes, but here the author fumbles, he lists scores of tribal names to the utter confusion of the reader. If the volume contained a map showing from what parts of the country the various warriors had come, it might all be clearer. And possibly more interesting.
