Southwestern Pennsylvania in Song and Story free pdf Excerpt from Southwestern Pennsylvania in Song and Story: With Notes and Illustrations The personages of the past- belonging to the pre-historic age of Southwestern Pennsylvania, are the Mammoth-hunger and the Mound-builder. Of the existence of the former in the Little World, nothing is known- and of the latter only that which has been inferred from, his works found here as elsewhere in the valley of the Mississippi - of whom more anon. However, it is known to a certainty, that before the extinction of the Mammoth and the Mastodon, a savage man inhabited this valley and destroyed these monstrous animals In a manner similar to that described in the following stanzas- and it may be assumed that the last of these great elephants was killed here as elsewhere, since their remains have been discovered in this locality - the tooth of a Mammoth, found in 1875, off the Point in the City of Pittsburgh, (where the Allegheny and Monogahela rivers unite to form the Ohio - or, as the word signifies, the Bloody, or the River of Blood, ) and now in the possession of the writer, suggesting the theme of the following poem. For further information, necessary, possibly, to an understanding of the letter of the poem, the reader, presumed to be a stranger in a strange land, is referred to the notes appended. Beneath the weight of the new-fallen snow, The boughs of the fir tree bent, A savory feast to the monstrous beast, That through the forest went. That through the forest went alone, The last of his mighty make, A moving mound on the frozen groundThat made the forest quake.
