Dust jacket notes: "In the autumn of 1832, four men with widely different backgrounds made a trip together down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers and overland into the center of Indian Territory, later to be part of Oklahoma. Leader of the party was Henry Leavitt Ellsworth, newly appointed Indian agent. The others were Washington Irving, who made the journey famous in his A Tour on the Prairies and his Western Journals; Charles Joseph Latrobe, an Englishman; and Count Albert-Alexandre de Pourtales, a Swiss youth later to serve in the Prussian diplomatic service. Accounts by the first three have long since been published, but only recently have the journal and letters of Count de Pourtales been brought to light, having been in possession of his descendants in Europe. A lively companion for his older friends, the young aristocrat thoroughly enjoyed his journey on the prairies, and his zest for life and adventure, fortitude. and adaptability are all reflected in his writings. Volume 54 in The American Exploration and Travel Series, Count de Pourtales' records are an exciting find for frontier historians and for students of Washington Irving."
