BRUIN VS ABRAHAM BOPE 1804 – Free eBook PDF

 

My family recently uncovered some history that I thought would be fun to share.

Take yourself back to the pioneer days in the heart of America, my home state of Ohio.

“BEARS”
FAIRFIELD // (ORIGINALLY GUESSED TO BE PUBLISHED IN THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH)
“WITH THE BOPE FAMILY”
BY LEWIS K. COOK

YEAR WRITTEN: 1934
YEAR TAKES PLACE: 1804/5
PLACE: LANCASTER, OHIO, USA

It’s so wild to imagine being both bear and pioneer in those days. Both would have felt so very righteous in their claim to the land.

Could my family have found a way to cohabit with the bears on the land they were settling? We can never know all of the details. We can only take their experience at face value, let our hearts race with the harrowing tale, and be grateful for our (some may say) more tame lifestyles of today.

Thanks for your time! ENJOY!
