Excerpt from Indian Sketches: Pere Marquette and the Last of the Pottawatomie Chiefs

This little volume of sketches has been prepared with the purpose of supplying children, and such of their elders as know nothing of these matters, with some of the most beautiful and heroic stories from the material for a history of the Northwest Territory. It is constructed on the theory that a history for children should make biography prominent, along with picturesque and social features, but that discussions and deductions fit for mature minds are not desirable in children's books. With a choice of presenting too much or too little of the available material, I have tried to send readers a little hungry from the feast rather than with an uneasy sense that they have had too much, and want no more of Indian history.

In anticipation of the probable criticism that these pictures of Indian life are not only too romantic, but too rosy, I can only say that Marquette, Petit, Catlin, and many other observers who knew the Indians as friends, saw them so. Examining these witnesses as to their credibility, we must conclude that they are not inferior in quality, but far above the ordinary pioneer or business man, for they were all of unusual intelligence, culture, and independence of character; they had no axes to grind, and were free to shake the dust from their feet and move on if they did not find the field profitable and to their liking.
