Regular price $1.00
Aboriginal Race of America - Ethnography, the analysis and classification of the races of men, is essentially a modern science. It is gravely disputed whether the ancient Egyptians belonged to the Caucasian race or to the Negro; and was it not for the light which now dawns upon us from their monuments and their tombs, this question might remain forever undecided. Among these the aboriginal inhabitants of America claim our attention. This vast theatre has thronged, from immemorial time, by numberless tribes which lived only to destroy & be in turn destroyed, without leaving a trace on earth.
