WHAT A MOST INTRIGUING ACCOUNT OF THE NATURAL HISTORY OF MANFROM THE 19TH CENTURY FROM THIS PROLIFIC WRITER!

John George Wood, or Rev J. G. Wood, (July 21, 1827–March 3, 1889), was a popular English writer on natural history. It was onlyinstinctive that he would pen this most fascinating account of The Uncivilized Races Of Men In All Countries Of The World.

This isa comprehensive account ofmanners and customs of uncivilized races of men, and of their physical, social, mental, moral and religious characteristics, inALL parts of the world… It's likened to a snapshot in time of the natural history of man…

Subjects included are:

Ethnology

Primitive Societies

and

Savages

The engravings with which the work is profusely ILLUSTRATED have been derived from many sources. Whether it was drawn from photographs or transferred to wood block, the work is clearly informative and pictorially wellinterpreted of its subjects.

That all uncivilized tribes should be mentioned, is impossible, however, for that era, this book covers an impressive amount of information. A greater amount of space has been given especially to AFRICA asit was around this time that exploration garnered much attention; espeically by David Livingston and H. M. Stanley.

Dr. Wood has given an account of the character, customs and life of ourNORTH AMERICAN INDIANS, and the savage tribes of the Arctic regions. Due to limited space, the accounts are brief yet comprehensive supported by fine engravings to illustrate their appearance and social life.

Concerning the North American Indians, as the object of this work is to present the manners and customs of tribes and races in their primitive state, and not those semi-civilized, it will be enough to merely introduce the names of the Cherokees, Choctaws, Creeks, Chickasaws, Senecas, Delawares, etc. Nor is it necessary to consider those, now extinct, that occupied the country when first settled by white men. For the same general characteristics, now presented, pertain to all the North American races. The Indian tribes are rapidly retreating or vanishing before the steady, irresistible march of civilization, and the growing grandeur of the great Republic in North America. The line, where the echoes of the Indian's yell blends with the shout of the advancing pioneers and the sound of the wood-chopper's axe, is continually moving westward. In a few years we have seen it pass from the Mississippi River, to the base of the Rocky Mountains. The settler's cabin is unceasingly encroaching upon the wigwams of the Red Men. With sadness, having smoothed the graves of their fathers, and taken a last look of their hunting grounds, they retreat before a power which they vainly strive to resist. Pressed backward in two centuries and a half, across three-quarters of the continent, from Massachusetts Bay almost to the Pacific, except a few decaying remnants of tribes, their history and doom cannot but awaken sympathy for an unfortunate and overpowered race.

The usefulness and value of such a work as this are greatly enhanced by a minute and comprehensive index. The contents explicitly offer all the subject areas covered within, giving a wide variety of countries and interesting information.
