The Red River settlement: its rise, progress, and present state. With some account of the native races and its general history, to the present day
London: Smith, Elder, 1856. First edition, 8vo, pp. xvi, 416; lithograph frontispiece; 20th century half polished tan calf over marbled boards, red morocco labels on spine; very good copy. Field 1327: "After many years of toil and adventure among the fierce tribes of the northern plains of Oregon and Washington territory, the author sought repose among his associates in the Red River Colony. The successive disasters of massacre, famine, and inundation, drove him from this forelorn asylum, to writing books descriptive of the wild people and wild life he had seen. All of these works possess the unfailing interest, which attach to the details of an intelligent observer and a faithful narrator. His pictures are of savage life and manners, as seen by the adventurous voyagers and fur-traders of the Hudson's Bay Company." Sabin 73328; Graff 3579; Staton & Tremaine 3304.
