Written in 1852 by the storied 19th century biographer Alder Buck Mason Ballad of the Bark Eater, and his many other biographical manuscripts were believed to be lost for nearly 170 years. Totem Lodge Press & The James R. Powers Historical Archives are proud to present Ballad of the Bark Eater for the first time in print.
