The lost hunters : a story of wild man and great beasts by Joseph A Altsheler( Book )

17 editions published between 1918 and 1990 in English and Czech and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Lost Hunters" is the second volume of the Great West Series of which "The Great Sioux Trail" was the first. In this story young Will Clarke, who has long been a captive among the Sioux, and who has risen to high favor, has become Sioux himself, not only in manners and customs, but in thought. The world is clothed for him in a new atmosphere and he believes with the Indians that good and evil spirits fill air, earth and water - in truth, all things. Hence, his eye and mind in this story are the eye and mind of the Sioux. It is well known that bear, deer and wolf grow much larger in the great valleys of far Northwestern Americans than anywhere else in the world, and it may be possible that still more gigantic specimens will yet be found in remote regions. The struggle of primeval man with wild beasts carried on for ages is here reproduced in the advent of the Sioux warriors among them, armed only with bow and arrow. The names applied to animals and inanimate objects in this book are note the coinage of the author but are those used by the Sioux -- Foreword
