Opis: The General, or Twelve Nights in the Hunters Camp - Barrows W.

Excerpt from The General, or Twelve Nights in the Hunters Camp: A Narrative of Real Life
This volume is matter of fact, being the truthful records of the actual life of a real person. Knowing The General thoroughly, and the facts and incidents as here related while they were taking place, I persuaded him to write them out, and for this reason: There is a passion among the young for a kind of reading that is full of adventure and startling incidents. This desire has been gratified and unduly stimulated by overwrought fiction, and the manifestation of much low and unworthy character. As The General, in his eventful life, furnished rare and ample material for a truthful and useful book of adventures, it seemed a good thing to write it out for the young.
Here is a real case for their study, where one goes up from boyhood through difficulties and daring exploits and perils to a ripe manhood of intelligence, and usefulness, and honor. Much of his life was a real romance and heroism of the noblest kind, and the record of it must prove a healthful stimulus to every young reader, who has energy, and daring, and the fixed purpose to make his life noble. To such I dedicate the book.
The volume was planned on the shores of Swan Lake. The sketches of that excursion are true, and I was there mainly to prepare the way for what is now offered. I have taken a dramatic liberty in making The General tell there a nightly story. Volumes of stories were told around that memorable camp fire. He wrote out the twelve soon afterwards, substantially as here given.
It has been my conceit to vary his continuous narrative by sketches of each day, and experiences of my own at other times.
