The full title of this unique book is “Frontier Experience, or Epistolary Sesquipedalian Lexiphanicism from the Occident” – and I guarantee you have never read anything like it! J.E.L. Seneker (1848-1916) had a distinguished career in education in eastern Tennessee. He traveled to the "wild west frontier" of the 1870s, and then described his trips in letters. Here is a brief sampling: "In former epistolary scribblements, I gave you the concatenation of concomitant circumstances initiatory to my transmigration to this remote section of the occidental portions of our columbian republican coadunation. ... In my brief swevens I endured circumvolation of pigwidgeons, cacodemons, and odible simulachres in my harns. ... I onerated my dorsal part with a portmanteau for the vectitation of my habiliments." You get the idea: although not a long book, reading it will be a challenge. Every page comes with a handy glossary, which keeps the task from being... More > impossible. Enjoy… and good luck!< Less
