Catherwood, Mary Hartwell: The Story of Tonty. v1. 25 Nov 2013
Mary Hartwell Catherwood (Ohio, 1847-Chicago,1902) was a successful writer of historical romances, publishing both novels and short stories in periodicals such as Lippincott's Magazine, Harper’s Magazine, and the Atlantic Monthly. Due to Catherwood’s husband’s business, she traveled and lived throughout the Midwest and developed her signature style of incorporating Midwestern culture, dialect, and local color into her texts. Although most of her novels and stories are set in Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, some are also based along the American border with French Canada and on colonial Mackinac Islan
The romancer is covered with the dust of old books, modern books, great books, and out of them all brings in a condensing hand these pictures of two men whose lives were as large as this continent.
La Salle is a definite figure in the popular mind. But La Salle’s greater friend is known only to historians and students. To me the finest fact in the Norman explorer’s career is the devotion he commanded in Henri de Tonty. No stupid dreamer, no ruffian at heart, no betrayer of friendship, no mere blundering woodsman as La Salle has been outlined by his enemies could have bound to himself a man like Tonty. The love of this friend and the words this friend has left on record thus honor La Salle. And we who like courage and steadfastness and gentle courtesy in men owe much honor which has never been paid to Henri de Tonty.
