About This Item

Orig. pub. Nashville 1858. Reprinted 1974. Print on Demand Edition 2010. (xii), 236 pp., frontis., new intro., map

One of the most engaging and valuable of the first-hand books of Tennessee historical reminiscences, this narrative recounts the adventures of a pioneer, hunter, Indian fighter, and scout during the time from 1790 to 1820 as told by Joseph Bishop to the author. Written in a very florid style, it nevertheless conveys the flavor of an old pioneer's adventures and character. The late Tennessee State Historian Stanley F. Horn, in a special introduction written for this reprint edition, called it "an impressive reflection of the raw reality of pioneer life in Tennessee," and welcomed the reprint edition which will make it more readily accessible to "the many who will be entertained and enlightened by it."

About The Reprint Company Publishers

The Reprint Company Publishers dates its origins to the mid-1950s when my father, who was editor of the local Spartanburg Journal, an afternoon newspaper, became involved with the serialized publication of John B.O. Landrum's History of Spartanburg County in the paper. He then issued that as a hardback book in 1959. Over the next ten years, he published about thirty reprints. I became publisher in 1970 and began moving it from a hobby-business to a fulltime occupation.In the early 1970s, I was contacted by the North Carolina Library Association concerning a list of out-of-print North Carolina titles which they felt should be reprinted. Jointly we developed a project which allowed all of the books to be published. Over the next fifteen years, I worked with library associations throughout the South and published reprint editions of approximately three hundred books.From that time to the present, I have been involved in the publication of over six hundred titles with the areas of specialization remaining local and regional history, scholarly material, and genealogical source material for the Southeastern area.The vast majority of our books are hardback and are printed on a long-life paper with a neutral pH factor. We are using Print on Demand technology to bring the better of our backlist titles back into print. The books listed here include titles we have in inventory here and orders are shipped from that inventory. The titles listed as Print on Demand are available in that format and are printed upon receipt of an order and ship directly from the bindery within three to five business days.
