88 editions published between 1897 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 878 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 fur-bearing animals of North America by Elliott Coues( Book )

63 editions published between 1877 and 2013 in English and held by 676 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

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

Birds of the Colorado Valley : a repository of scientific and popular information concerning North American ornithology by Elliott Coues( Book )

32 editions published between 1878 and 2013 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This treatise may be regarded as complementary to the "Birds of the Northwest" (Misc. Pub. No. 3). It covers much ground not gone over in the latter work, in all that relates to the technicalities of the general subject, as well as to the particular life-histories of the birds composing the remarkable avian fauna of the Colorado Basin. As originally projected for publication in a different connection, the work consisted merely of a report upon the peculiar features of bird-life in the area under consideration, with biographies of the species not treated in the "Birds of the Northwest". But the author's resources have proved to be so largely in excess of the requirements of such a report that the work has outgrown the limits of a single volume, and become a full exposition of our present knowledge of the subject, by the incorporation of much technical matter concerning North American ornithology at large, hitherto the private possession of the author and now first made accessible to the public
