1893. Illustrated. Musick's early writings were sometimes written under pseudonyms, Benjamin Broadaxe (or Broadax), Ebenezer Slypole, and Don Jenardo, among others. He was admitted to the bar and practiced law until 1882 when he began to devote full-time to his writing. Pocahontas is one of the volumes in his 12 volume set of Columbian Historical Novels. In Chapter VII he writes: There is no story more dear to the heart of the American than that of Pocahontas. It has been so often narrated that it has become a nursery legend, yet in all history none more dramatic and touching can be found. It has moved hearts since it was first told to civilized ears. Each succeeding generation reads anew the tender tale, narrated, perhaps, by some new author, who, in song or story, makes of Smith and his child rescuer the incarnation of his own fancy. It has been told in romance, sung to the sweet notes of the harp, performed on the stage, and gravely narrated by the historian, yet wherever heard, however told, it loses nothing; the story itself is always the same, and never fails to move the heart of the listener.
