Lynn V. Andrews, in her review of "Black Wolf" by Betty Keller (Book Review, Sept. 1), made some remarks in reference to the late Ernest Thompson Seton that are not quite correct. Andrews was apparently misled by the text of that book. I do not recall that Seton was born in England despite the many books he authored. Perhaps he was. But he wrote about a youngster living in a suburban town in New York state, if memory serves me correctly.
Seton wrote of a lad who explored the countryside about his home. He discovered a "hidden dell" where the boy (and a friend) set about playing Indians. I first read the story while a student at Colton High School in 1930.
I had lived a few months in the area of Santa Fe, N.M., just before Pearl Harbor. There I had heard of Ernest Thompson Seton (again). And Seton Village. There were tales going around about Seton Village, which was not on the Navajo Reservation as your book reviewer stated. The Navajo Reservation was 100 miles to the west of Seton Village, which was just south of Santa Fe, on the south side of the main highway going east toward Pecos and Las Vegas, N.M.
