Letters and notes on the North American Indians by George Catlin( Book )

9 editions published between 1975 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Catlin's Letters and Notes on the North American Indians was originally published in 1841 in two volumes. It is an astonishing work by an extraordinary reporter. It is the record, and sometimes the only record, of the last high afternoon of glory for the Indian nations west of the Mississippi. This single-volume edition, illustrated with Catlin's portraits and line drawings, preserves the best of his description and anecdote ... His Letters and Notes describe the Indians while they still inhabited their own country; they report the native costumes, occupations, dances, great medicines, feasts, and ceremonies and principal personalities-all portrayed in delightful anecdote."--Jacket

Last rambles amongst the Indians of the Rocky Mountains and the Andes by George Catlin( Book )

41 editions published between 1867 and 2012 in English and Swedish and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American artist George Catlin (1796-1872) travelled extensively and wrote about his experiences. After abandoning the legal profession, Catlin moved to Missouri in 1830 to launch his career as a painter of Native Americans with the express purpose of creating a gallery dedicated to America's indigenous population. He was greatly influenced by the Romantic ideal of the 'noble savage' and spent time living with various tribes, recording their everyday life and habits. In the 1850s, he also made three trips to South America and began to draw comparisons between the populations. He shares his thoughts in this work, published in 1868. Written for children and intended as a follow-up to his Life amongst the Indians (1861), the book is a mixture of legend, history, folklore and anecdotes of personal experience. Sometimes regarded as a pioneer of American anthropology, Catlin also outlines his ethnographical theories in the last few chapters
