About this book

Jonathan Carver was commissioned in 1766 to chart the unknown regions of the American Mid-West. Out of print for over 100 years, the reappearance of his journals makes a welcome contribution to the literature of American history. It includes insights into the fauna, flora, climate and geography of the period.
