[lovely book, virtually as new, appears unread; jacket moderately worn at extremities, slight fading/scraping to spine, addtional minor scraping to front panel, tiny chip at top of rear panel]. (B&W plates) "Through this book, which adheres strictly to historical facts, there surges the complete misunderstanding between the white man and the red man; the fierce struggle of the latter for freedom; the tragedy, the sweep of civilization overcoming and overpowering the more primitive race; the hopelessness of the dream of the young Chief, patriot of the Indian cause, whom the English named King Philip, and who strove against all odds to save his people from the tyranny of an alien race, but failed."
