Catalogue Note

Carver's work is a classic of American travel and among the earliest and best accounts of pioneer days in the region of Minnesota and Wisconsin. He "penetrated farther into the West than any other English explorer before the Revolution" (Howes). The text contains the first published mention of the word "Oregon", comments on Indians and on natural history.
