Pete Sheldon


This charming cover insert in color by F. Cayley-Robinson for the book Fierce Feathers by L. V. Hodgkin. The climax of the story as Hodgkin imagined it is: Robert Nisbet, the visiting Friend, who could speak and understand French, had a conversation with one of the Indians in that language, and this was what he said: 'We surrounded your house, meaning to destroy every living person within it. But when we saw you sitting with your door open, and without weapons of defense, we had no wish any longer to hurt you. Now, we would fight for you, and defend you ourselves from all who wish you ill.

Print is offered in good antique condition.
