User Summary: "This is the dime novel mentioned by Henry A. Shute in his "Real Diary of a Real Boy." He wrote: "December 23. Billy Swett lent me a dime novel to read Sunday, it was named Billy Bolegs a sequil to Nat Tod the traper, sequil means the things in Nat Tod that was not finished." However, Judge Shute was mistaken, for "Billy Bowlegs" is not the sequel to "Nat Todd." The date of the story is from 1835 to 1842. Billy Bowlegs was Osceola's successor."--Johannsen, A. House of Beadle and Adams and its dime and nickel novels
