Excerpt from Lyman Copeland Draper: A Memoir<br><br>In these journeys of discovery, largely through dense wildernesses, Draper traveled, in all, over sixty thousand miles, meeting with hundreds of curious incidents and hairbreadth escapes, by means of runaway horses, fright ful storms, swollen streams, tipped-over stages, snagged steamboats, extremities of hunger, and the like, yet never once injured nor allowing any untoward Circumstance to thwart the particular mission at the time in view. Many of those he sought, especially before 1850, were far removed from taverns and other conveniences of civilization; but pioneer hospitality was general and generous, and a stran ger at the hearth a most welcome diversion to the dull routine of a frontiersman's household. The guest of the interviewed, the inquisitive stranger often stopped weeks together at those crude homes in the New York, Ohio, Ken tucky, Virginia and Tennessee backwoods - long enough to extract, with the acquired skill of a cross-examiner, every morsel of historical information, every item of valu able reminiscence stored in the mind of his host; while old diaries, or other family documents which might cast side lights on the stirring and romantic story of western settle ment, were deemed objects worth obtaining by means of the most astute diplomacy.<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
