2802. Henry Rowe Schoolcraft, 1793–1864

Henry R. Schoolcraft took part in a number of exploratory trips through the Mississippi Valley area while it was still largely a frontier wilderness. His reports on these and his extensive books on American Indians constituted a major contribution to the knowledge of the frontier and of the Indians. Longfellow and many other authors were influenced by and made use of these writings. In 1851 Schoolcraft published a volume of Personal Memoirs of a Residence of Thirty Years with the Indian Tribes,which took a rough diary form and thus supplied a near-autobiography of this scholar-frontiersman.

2803. Narrative journal of travels through the northwestern regions of the United States, extending from Detroit through the great chain of American lakes to the sources of the Mississippi River, in the year 1820. East Lansing, Michigan State College Press, 1953. 520 p. 53–1985 F484.3.S37 1953

Included in the appendixes are letters, journals, newspaper accounts, official reports, and other materials relating to the expedition.

First edition: 1821.
