Narrative of the extraordinary life of John Conrad Shafford : known by many by the name of the Dutch hermit, who for the last 50 years has lived a secluded and lonely life, in a log hut, in a remote part of the village of Dundee (Lower Canada) ... : Shafford ... was induced first to prefer a lonely life in consequence of being deprived of ... a beloved daughter, who ... was taken prisoner and carried off a captive by the Indians ... : the particulars ... may be found herein detailed, and are sufficient to satisfy the reader, that the North American savages are not in every instance as humane and forbearing to their white female captives as they have been represented to be.
