THE NEW DEERFOOT SERIES

BY

EDWARD S. ELLIS

Illustrated by J. STEEPLE DAVIS

No. 1. Deerfoot in the Forest No. 2. Deerfoot on the Prairies No. 3. Deerfoot in the Mountains

Each contains seven half tone engravings and color frontispiece . They make more real the fortunes and adventures of the heroic little band that journeys through the wilderness and prairies from the Ohio to the Pacific. It was in the time of daring when Lewis and Clark were engaged in their thrilling expedition that the adventures narrated by the distinguished author of boys' books are described as occurring. Our old friends, George and Victor, of the "Log Cabin Series," are again met with in these pages, and the opportunity of once more coming face to face with Deerfoot will be welcomed by every juvenile reader.

The New Deerfoot Series is bound in uniform style in cloth, with side and back stamped in colors.
