81 editions published between 1897 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 872 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elliott Coues, one of America's greatest ornithologists, tracked down the journals of fur trader Alexander Henry (1765-1814 and geographer David Thompson (1770-1857), employees of the Northwest Company. Despite the deep prejudice evident in Henry's writing, Coues judged it a reliable account of his unscrupulous business dealings, and of the harsh realities he observed among many different First Nations peoples. Volume One covers the period from 1799-1808, when Henry travelled along the Red River and set up the Pembina River trading post. Volume Two covers 1808-1814, when Henry travelled in Saskatchewan and Alberta, across the Great Divide, and traded along the Columbia River. Coues accompanying notes draw heavily on Thompson's scientic records

The journal of Jacob Fowler, narrating an adventure from Arkansas through the Indian Territory, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, and New Mexico, to the sources of Rio Grande del Norte, 1821-22 by Jacob Fowler( Book )

23 editions published between 1898 and 2009 in English and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The journal of Major Jacob Fowler had reseted in quiet hands as a manuscript for many years before it was discovered by chance by Dr. Elliott Coues. And it took all of his vast scholarship to interpret the message it contained. The importance of the Fowler Journal lies greatly in the fact that while other men had previously traversed the great southwest, their accounts were never recorded for future generations, and the present volume is the first account by an American covering this wild and unknown area. Major Fowler was a surveyor, an educated man, born in New York State, but who moved to Kentucky at an early age. His detailed observations of his travels in the years 1821-22 remain the basic source material for much history that has been since written on the vast southwest

He met in his travels the Sioux, the Ojibway, the Osage, and the Pawnee Indians. His assistant, Lieutenant James Wilkinson, explored the Arkansas River in northwestern Oklahoma

29 editions published between 1877 and 2010 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This treatise on Fur-bearing Animals of North America, prepared by Dr. Elliott Coues, is published as a specimen fasciculus of a systematic History of North American Mammals, upon which the author has been long engaged. It is believed that the Monograph satisfactorily reflects the present state of our knowledge of these animals, and forms a desirable contribution to the literature of the general subject. The Muselidae, like most other families of North American mammals, have not been systematically revised for many years, during which much new material, hitherto unused, has become available for the purposes of science
