Excerpt from The Canoe and the Saddle: Adventures Among the Northwestern Rivers and Forests; And Isthmiana Theodore Winthrop's celebrated romance of frontier adventure has been out of print for some years, but the frequent calls for a new edition, properly illustrated, testify to its abiding charm and value. In undertaking such an edition, I have felt that a book which seems destined to remain the chief classic of our early Northwest deserves most careful editing and very generous illustration. The reprint here presented, with its addition of the author's letters and journals, cover ing his entire stay on the Pacific Coast, and with illustrations selected from a wide field, will doubtless appeal to an even larger circle of readers than that which welcomed The Canoe and the Saddle on its first appearance, fifty years ago.
