Docas: The Indian Boy of Santa Clara (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Docas: The Indian Boy of Santa ClaraMy dear Children: -What sort of people do you like best to read about - white people or Indians?I think you will say Indians, because all the children of whom I have ever asked this question have said that they liked best to read about Indians. Indians do everything so differently from the way we do that they are always interesting.This book which we are now going to read is about Indians, - the Indians who lived nearare always interesting.This book which we are now going to read is about Indians, - the Indians who lived near the Pacific Ocean before our grandfathers were born, and before we Americans came west and settled the country.Do you like best to read about grown-up people or about children? I think I can hear you say, "What a question! Children, of course!" Yes, children can have such fun, running and playing and finding out about all kinds of things for which grown people never have time, that it is much pleasanter to read about them.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
