Passing along an interesting post from WeaponsMan
It was November second, 1746, and it was Daniel’s twelfth birthday. He was twelve years old. Now he should get the gun his father had promised him. His brothers had received their guns when they were twelve.
But maybe he wouldn’t after all. He knew his father didn’t have the money to buy one. He was afraid he didn’t have enough skins to trade.
This is from a children's book published in 1943, given as a reward for perfect Sunday School attendance.

The post invites us to "[compare] the feeble children’s literature of today to the robust children’s literature of the 1940s." Go give him a visit.

The book is actually still in print.
Daniel Boone, Boy Hunter by Augusta Stevenson.
