Deadly Dan, the Dare-Devil, 1878

Above, we close out our annual Native American Heritage Month postings, with “Deadly Dan, the Dare-Devil, A Dime Novel of Today” or “What Our Boys Are Reading”, by artist Livingston Hopkins, from the August 27th, 1878 front page of the (New York) Daily Graphic.

Click on the page, to view it in a larger size, and thus be able to read it.

Dime novels of the day promoted to readers the idea of the civilized white man conquering the savage red man, in their various “Adventures of Indian Slayers”. (They were far from the only source for this.) Below, a close-up of the panel of “Deadly Dan”, dealing with “Indian Slaying”.

Beneath, art by Opper, linking to a prior posting involving Dime Novels and Indian Killing (click on it).
