Excerpt from Stories From Louisiana History

This book of "Stories from Louisiana History" is intended to lead up to the author's History of Louisiana, which has been used for more than a decade in the public schools of the State. It relates in greater detail and in simpler form the romantic incidents in the early history of the Mississippi Valley.

Though the "Stories" have been prepared for very young readers, the authors have been able, in a large part of the book, to give them word for word from the original sources. The narratives left us by the first explorers and settlers tell in the simplest and most stirring language of the dangers and hardships they themselves endured. Thus, at the beginning of their studies, the young people may taste one of the highest joys of the historian; they may feel themselves in direct, intimate touch with the men who made our history.

The "Stories," it will be found, are true in every particular. Not a single detail has been introduced from the realm of fiction.

It should be added that the first portion of the book, down to the Revolution of 1768, was written by Miss King and the remainder by Mr. Ficklen. The latter wishes to express his obligations to his wife for her aid in preparing the story of the "Great Purchase," and both authors desire to thank her for designing the cover.

If the present volume meets with favor, the authors purpose to issue another covering the period from 1815 to the present time.
