These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside The Trail-Hunter A Tale of the Far West:Look inside the book: Since the United States Americans have revealed to the world, by seizing one-half of Mexico, whither their ambition tends, the inhabitants of that fine country have slightly emerged from the torpor they enjoyed, and have made great efforts to colonise their provinces, and summon to their soil, which is so rich and fertile, intelligent and industrious labourers, who might change the face of affairs, and cause abundance and wealth to abound at spots, where, prior to their arrival, there was naught save ruin, desolation, carelessness, and misery. ...Earnest complaints had been laid against him before the Mexican Government; but whatever might be the power of his enemies, and the means they employed to ruin him, the rich hacendero had never been seriously disturbed: in the first place, because New Mexico is too remote from the capital for the inhabitants to have anything to fear from the governing classes; and secondly, Don Miguel was too rich not to render it easy for him to impose silence on those who were most disposed to injure him. About Gustave Aimard, the Author: After one more stay in America (where, according to himself, he was adopted into a Comanche tribe), Aimard returned to Paris in 1847--the same year his half-sister, Duchess de Choiseul-Pralin, was brutally murdered by her noble husband. ...During his stay in Rio de Janeiro he had contact with Emperor Dom Pedro II of Brazil as is apparent from Aimard's January, 11, 1880 letter to Pedro II which letter he signed with Gustave Aimard.
