A parody done in the form of an epic poem by the Delaware writer Christopher Ward. A near fine copy with minimal wear. From the University of Delaware's Ward biography: " The saga was a rhymed burlesque and was followed by several others in the same genre, including a parody of Christopher Columbus and Robinson Crusoe. These burlesques were Ward's vehicle for incorporating his love of history into his comical literary style, and he enjoyed a certain degree of success with this new hybrid." . Very Good. 1928. First Edition. (Inventory #: 15696)
