30 Years with the Indian Tribes on the American Frontiers
Publisher: Madison & Adams Press
Personal Memoirs Of A Residence Of Thirty Years With The Indian Tribes On The American Frontiers is Henry Schoolcraft's autobiographical account of his career as an Indian Agent.
"Ten years ago I returned from the area of the Mississippi Valley to New York, my native State, after many years' residence and exploratory travels of that quarter of the Union. Having become extensively known, personally, and as an author, and my name having been associated with several distinguished actors in our western history, the wish has often been expressed to see some record of the events as they occurred. In yielding to this wish, it must not be supposed that the writer is about to submit an autobiography of himself; nor yet a methodical record of his times--tasks which, were he ever so well qualified for, he does not at all aspire to, and which, indeed, he has not now the leisure, if he had the desire, to undertake."
