The story of the Indian by George Bird Grinnell( Book )
2 editions published in 1895 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Written at the turn of the century by the founder of the National Audubon Society, Story of the Indian is an attempt to preserve the picturesque and original aspects of our western development when the figures of the real west were the Indian, the explorer, the soldier, the miner, the ranchman, the trapper and the railroad worker. As a famed explorer, naturalist and pioneer conservationist, George Bird Grinnell's knowledge of the west was gained by true-life experiences in ranching, mining and Indian life between Sonora and Vancouver, Texas and Dakota
Geronimo: his own story by Geronimo( Book )
1 edition published in 1906 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During 1905 and 1906, Geronimo, the Apache warrior and honorary war chief, dictated his story through a native interpreter to S.M. Barrett, then superintendent of schools in Lawton, Oklahoma. As Geronimo was by then a prisoner of war, Barrett had made appeals all the way up the chain of command to President Teddy Roosevelt for persmission to record the words of the "Indian outlaw." Geronimo came to each interview knowing exactly what he wanted to cover, beginning with his telling of the Apache creation story. --From publisher's description

The ancient cities of the New world : being voyages and explorations in Mexico and Central America from 1857-1882 by Désiré Charnay( )
1 edition published in 1888 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Born in France, Charnay (1828-1915) travelled extensively through commissions from the French government and with private patronage. He made several visits to the region between 1857 and 1886, producing in his work both a journal of his adventures and an archaeological examination of past civilizations. Beginning in Mexico, Charnay notably examines the ancient city of Tula and also the history of Yucatán, discussing aspects of Toltec and Mayan culture. He explores the ruins of Chichen Itza, Kabah and Yaxchilan (which Charnay dubbed 'Lorillard Town' after a benefactor), among many other settlements. Surveying art, pyramid architecture, ancient customs and history based on extant sources, this account was a major contribution in its field and remains of interest to scholars of Latin American archaeology
