1 edition published in 1831 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ross Cox was a fur trader for the Pacific Fur Company. In 1811 he sailed from New York, around the Horn, to Hawaii, and on to the Columbia River, exploring inland to Montana along the Clark Fork and Flathead Rivers. For six years he lived on the frontier - and beyond - in a violent world of white and red men, bears and wolves, frostbite, and starvation. He wasn't a hero, but he was a survivor, and a sharp observer who wrote one of the best first-hand accounts of the fur trapper's life

Amelia by Henry Fielding( Book )

2 editions published in 1832 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With its combination of satire and sentiment, its focus on the seedy side of London life, and its unexpected shifts in tone, Amelia has intrigued and disturbed readers since its first publication. Eagerly awaited by Henry Fielding's eighteenth-century readers of Tom Jones, the novel perplexed many of them. Amelia counters the traditional courtship plot of eighteenth-century novels with its convincing portrayal of a marriage between an errant husband and his wife, and is ahead of its time in its depiction of the alienation of modern city life

The life and opinions of Tristram Shandy, gentleman by Laurence Sterne( Book )

1 edition published in 1832 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Doomed to become the 'sport of fortune' by an interruption at the crucial moment of conception, Tristram Shandy's life lurches from one mishap to another: his nose crushed by the doctor's forceps during birth, christened with the worng name, an unfortunate incident involving a slamming sash window. Though everything occurs between parlor and garden, Tristram's excitable father, bewildered mother, and Uncle Toby provide ample opportunity for the digressions and madcap events that structure this seminal novel
