This narrative was compiled by William H Keating, who was the geologist with Stephen Harriman Long’s expedition in the early 1820’s to survey the Great Lakes. In two volumes with many plates and maps, this is an intensive study of the area and is noted for the comprehensive commentary about the Sioux and other Indian tribes. In befriending them Keating is able to provide a valuable insight into their history and culture at a time when the white settlers were beginning to flood into their territory – the two cultures were destined to come together with more tragic results within the next decade when a large part of the Sauk tribe was wiped out by the US army and local militia.
Compiled from the notes of Major Long, Messrs. Say, Keating and Colhoun by William H. Keating, A.M.
