Gustave Aimard (1818–1883)

Aimard, Gustave (ā-mär’). A French novelist (1818–83). He came to America as a boy and spent a number of years among the Indians; and afterwards traveled through Spain, Turkey, and the Caucasus, and returned to Paris in 1848. His stories, in imitation of Cooper’s Indian tales, although abounding in improbabilities, hold the attention of the reader: ‘The Trappers of Arkansas’ (1858); ‘The Great Chief of the Aucas’ (1858); ‘The Pirates of the Prairie’ (1859); ‘The White Scalpers’ (1873); ‘The Rat Hunters’ (1876).
