Dave and the Indian Attack!
Exciting glimpse of frontier life of America—Ever scene authentically illustrated with Lincoln Logs, America’s national toy!
Indians! Run for the stockage, Davy!
I spotted them in war paint coming upstream in canoes.
While Davy raced ahead to give the alarm to the fort, his father warned the others.
Soon every family reached the stockage. As the Indians rushed from their canoes, a hail of bullets hit the fort.
Oh! They’re setting fire to the cabins!
All that night the pioneers beat back attach after attack. At last—After a desperate final assault, the Indians fled.
And so—sadly but thankfully—the settlers set about repairing the damage.
