p. 109: This book is the origin of the false legend about Mary Harris. It is as legendary as the story of Mary Ingles having a baby on the trail. This was a popular type of historical fiction in the 1800s. Now would-be historians scrape all these myths together, and scissors-and-paste them into narratives that pass for history.
Beware the too-good story in an old book, or a new one.
