Lost in the Woods

Singular Sufferings of Two Friends, who had lost themselves in an American Forest, York, England, C.Croshaw, Coppergate, [c.1801]
A chapbook telling the tale of two travelers who become lost in upstate New York while searching for honey. This narrative, which ends thankfully with both men  - and their plump canine companion - intact, is a pirated excerpt from St. John de Crevecoeur's Voyage dans la haute Pensylvanie et dans l’état de New-York (1801), and is put to use to illustrate to British readers the dangers, rather than the appeal, of the beckoning North American frontier.
