Sample text

39 since the time that the Spaniards first introduced the horse into America. The red-skin warrior trains his steed to the chase, as he trains his child to the warpath. The white man, possessing as much courage as the savage, and armed with infinitely more deadly weapons, even surpasses the Indian in the slaughter of this gigantic game, killing ten where the Indian kills one; so that although we cannot determine the precise time for the extinction of the buffalo, there is no doubt as to his ultimate fate.

On the frozen plains of the north, a stunted growth of grass barely suffices to save the reindeer from starvation. In the central regions the climate is temperate, and the prairies produce a large quantity of vegetable food for the support of the many animals that roam over them. To the south, where the sun is more powerful, there grows a thick tall grass, sometimes reaching higher than a horse's belly, though there are spots where the herbage has been consumed, and the surface presents a sweet, succulent, short food for the animals that eagerly seek it.

If no dogs are used, unless in cases of great emergency, and if the hunters are thoroughly up to their business, a tract of forest and prairie can be hunted, day after day, for a very long time, without making the game wild. Perhaps the reader may be induced to say that our time might have been more profitably employed; and that may be true. We did not make very much money by our hunting; but still the expenses were not very great, so that what we did receive was nearly all clear gain. We were not troubled by any landlord; the tax-collector was afraid of losing himself; there were no butcher's bills; so that all our outlay was for ammunition, flour or meal, coffee, sugar, salt, tobacco and whisky.
