We deem it well, however, to mention a few Of the many reasons which impelled us to attempt the somewhat laborious but congenial task of preparing this work.
First of all, we were gratified and inspired by the kind reception accorded our first literary venture, The White Side of a Black Subject, which is now out of print after reaching twelve editions. Added to this was the still more generous treat ment of our second production, A New Negro for a New Cen tury. Nearly a hundred thousand copies of this book have been sold up to date, and the demand is still increasing.
Having done what we could to vindicate the afro-american, we next began to consider the First American, when by chance a copy of Thatcher's Indian Biography fell into our hands. We read this book with much interest, and were impressed with two facts. First of all, we noticed that while the author gave the lives of a few chiefs well known to this generation, he filled the book up with village or sub chiefs, of whom even historians of this age never heard. Then, too, the book in question was seventy-four years old.
