211 p. "The early accounts of the [region west of the Mississippi acquired in the Louisiana purchase] contain references to the native camps and villages, their forms and extent, tell of the manner in which the habitations were constructed, and relate how some were often removed from place to place. Extracts from the various narratives are now brought together, thus to describe the homes and ways of life of the people who once claimed and occupied a large section of the present United States." In addition to the structures and customs of the tribes and the many subgroups, a few pages are devoted to the buffalo, virtually exterminated by the time this book was published. Includes 55 plates and 12 text figures. Olive green cloth hard cover, gilt titles on spine (rubbed and barely visible); worn at extremities; signature of previous owner (G.T.[?] Gustavson, Pequot, Minn.) inside front cover; overall tight and clean, very good.
