Pennsylvania Indian Folk - Songs, a 1925 address by Col. Henry W. Shoemaker book
- Source: eBay
This little 20 page book titled PENNSYLVANIA INDIAN FOLK-SONGS was an address given by Henry W. Shoemaker before the College Club, Williamsport, Pennsylvania November 24, 1925. I found no publisher listed. This soft cover has a picture of Jesse Logan on the cover posing with a smile, and pulling back a bow string, with a tomahawk tucked in his belt. Jesse Logan was the nephew of James Logan the Mingo Chief, and son of Chief Shikellamy. Jesse Logan lived well over a hundred (1809-1906), and contributed Indian history and lore to Shoemaker. This soft cover is 8 3/4 inches by 6 inches. It has soiling throughout and a former owners name written on the cover, There are some slight tears on the ends of the spine folds, but the staples are present and there are no loose pages. All defects are shown in the photos, If you're reading this I'm sure you're familiar with Shoemaker's work. This is one of those odd-balls that pop up once in a while, that are rare, so bid accordingly.
