The Red God’s Call

Two images from a postcard folder published by the O.K. News Corporation of Geneva, N.Y. The folder includes an essay by Gilbert T. Brewer (1898-1967), a writer for the Canandaigua Daily Messenger and an amateur historian, entitled “The Lure of the Finger Lakes.” Brewer writes:

“Skaneateles Lake, marking the eastern extremity of the chain, nestles like a gem in a calm and pastoral setting. Here are combined all of the out-of-door features so attractive to the tourist, made doubly interesting through the wealth of Indian lore which abounds about its shores. Nowhere, if one seeks for a while to follow the ‘Red God’s call’ away from the marts of man, can be found more ideal environs than those in the vicinity of Skaneateles Lake.”

Brewer is best known as an author of war stories for pulp magazines such as Sky Riders, Zeppelin Stories and Dare-Devil Aces in the late 1920s and early 1930s.
