(In regards to the review for "accidents and remarkable events, containing caution and instruction for children") This is a bit off the wall. A childrens book, about terrible things that can happen to you. Getting beheaded by a lion, have the stagecoach fall down an embankment, getting shot, falling off a ladder, etc.
