Including a completely revised and updated bibliography, A History of Missouri: Volume I, 1673 to 1820 covers the pre-statehood history of Missouri, beginning with the arrival in 1673 of the first Europeans in the area, Louis Jolliet and Jesuit Father Jacques Marquette, and continuing through the development and growth of the region, to the final campaign for statehood in 1820. In tracing the broad outlines of Missouri's development through the formative years, the author examines the origins of Missouri's diverse heritage as the region passed under the control of French, Spanish, and American authorities.

Review:

Foley "has written a readable, accurate synthesis of the events in Missouri's history up to 1820 and thereby provides layman and professional alike with an excellent volume for both reading and reference. Foley knows his history well. . . . One of the best parts of the book is the excellent description of the transfer of power from France to the United States and of the early problems in the territory as the Americans established territorial government. . . . The discussion of the War of 1812 in Missouri is also excellent and demonstrates many problems on the northwestern frontier during the crisis. . . . The book is outstanding."—Western Historical Quarterly



"Foley has really performed a service to his profession, to the people of his state, and to the reader in general. He has, for the present generation, supplied a readable, interpretative, and well-organized history of the early period in his state's history. Indeed, he has given a lucid portrayal of the life and times of the people."
William & Mary Quarterly
