The conquest of the Illinois by George Rogers Clark( )

12 editions published between 1920 and 2007 in English and held by 1,919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1920 and long out of print, the Milo Milton Quaife edition of Clark's The Conquest of The Illinois reprinted here is superior to the original for the modern reader. First, Quaife provided an index. Equally important for modern readers, he standardized Clark's spelling. Clark had little formal education and his spelling was even more eccentric than that found in a typical eighteenth-century account. Finally, Quaife's footnotes often include biographical sketches of the people in the book."--Jacket

The truth about Geronimo by Britton Davis( Book )

20 editions published between 1929 and 1976 in English and held by 1,051 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Britton Davis' first-hand account of the controversial 'Geronimo' Campaign of 1885-86 is one of the few fairly presented pictures of the famous renegade and the men who finally forced his surrender. Davis knew most of the people involved in the campaign, and was himself in charge of Indian scouts, some of whom helped hunt down the small band of fugitives. He gives an accurate picture not only of the campaign and the personalities involved but also of the Indians as human beings, which few believed they were in those days. Although he considered the Apaches 'especially wild, intractable, and resentful of restraint', he also found them to be good scouts, and retained a profound respect for their abilities. Robert Utley's foreward re-evaluates the account for the modern reader and establishes its historical background. -- Back Cover

A woman's story of pioneer Illinois by Christiana Holmes Tillson( Book )

17 editions published between 1919 and 2009 in English and held by 708 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christiana and John Tillson moved from Massachusetts to central Illinois in 1822. Upon arriving in Montgomery County near what would soon be Hillsboro, they set up a general store and real estate business and began to raise a family. A half century later, in 1870, Christiana Tillson wrote about her early days in Illinois in a memoir published by R. R. Donnelley in 1919. The Tillsons lived quite ordinary lives in extraordinary times, notes Kay J. Carr, introducing this edition. They moved west and prospered in the land business at a time when America was being transformed from a rural, agricultural country into an urban, industrial nation. Their views and sensibilities, Carr says, might seem strange to us, but they were entirely normal to people in the early nineteenth century. Thus Tillson's memoir provides fascinating but believable snapshots of ordinary nineteenth-century American life
