Philadelphia: Porter & Coates. 1853. viii, 360 pp.  Includes illustrations. The lofty mountains, mighty forests, rivers and valleys of the West, many portions of which have never been explored, furnish abundant resources for the gratification of the Naturalist, the Lapidary, and the Antiquarian. It is with the view of directing attention to these sources of information, that the author has grouped together in this little work, many startling incidents in prairie life, and alluded to relics of antiquity, bearing unmistakable indications of a high order of civilization and science, in regard to which subsequent discoveries have proved the hypothesis he assumes correct.Keywords: DW BELISLE AMERICAN FAMILY ROBINSON ADVENTURES LOST IN GREAT DESERT WEST HISTORICAL FICTION AMERICANA AMERICAN WESTERN WESTERNS FRONTIER PIONEER Condition Notes: No publisher date, Preface dated 1853.
