Thomas Jefferson and the changing West : from conquest to conservation by Missouri Historical Society( )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lewis and Clark : across the divide by Carolyn Gilman( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lewis and Clark: Across the Divide expands and transforms this familiar story by exploring the social and cultural landscapes the expedition traversed. Lewis and Clark: Across the Divide also follows the explorers' steps by reconstructing the richly physical worlds of the expeditions. Gathered in this volume are 400 illustrations, the results of a five-year enterprise to trace and authenticate the original artifacts, documents, maps, and artworks of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Scattered for two hundred years, the surviving physical evidence is now reassembled from more than fifty lending institutions and individuals across the United States. The result is a new view of the equipment the expedition used as well as the color, complexity, and diversity of the cultures they encountered - items that gave the young Republic its first glimpse of what later became the cross-continental nation. A concluding essay weaves together contemporary tribal perspectives to summarize Native American experiences since Lewis and Clark's visit, mapping out a powerful - and hopeful - vision for the future."--Jacket
Three years among the Indians and Mexicans by Thomas James( Book )

12 editions published between 1916 and 1975 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the earliest narratives of the fur-trade; covering experiences on the upper Missouri in 1809, and an expedition to Santa Fe, in 1821. Written from James' dictation by Nathan Niles, who, resenting local newspaper criticism, destroyed nearly all copies. The first first copy of James' work to turn up came into the collection of the Missouri Historical Society in 1909 or 1910. Realizing the importance and rarity of the James narrative, this Society issued the first reprint in 1916

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Malindy's freedom : the story of a slave family by Mildred Johnson( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Malindy's Freedom, Johnson and Delsoin construct a narrative that realistically re-creates Malindy's world - the individuals she encountered, the crucibles she faced, the battles she won. The authors relied principally on census records, along with other primary and secondary sources, to back up the oral histories passed on from their grandmother about the "peculiar institution" of slavery. As a slave narrative, Malindy's story is unique because it makes clear that the African American experience derives from Native American and European, as well as African, roots. The beauty of Malindy's Freedom is the authors' appreciation of their ancestors as human beings, who did the best they could for their families under inhuman conditions."--Jacket
