"Few men have had better opportunities for studying the Indian character and investigating their customs than Gen. Woodward. Very early in life . . he was brought into contact with the Red Man; and, stirred by the Indian blood in his own veins, he studied his character and traditions lovingly and earnestly. The unpretending pages which follow contain a very great deal of matter of high historical value to the people of Alabama and Georgia."-Introduction. "A small volume of reminiscences about the Indians, which attempts to confute many of the statements made by Pickett, Meek, Coxe, and others, which have been in part adopted in this volume. He was an interesting man, tall and erect, and brusk (sic) in manner."-Brewer's History of Alabama.
