Marcy -- trail blazer, geographer, Mexican fighter, indian authority, and author -- has too long languished in obscurity. Traveling as extensively as any other nineteenth-century explorer, he has yet to achieve the fame of Lewis and Clark, Pike, Long, and fremont, although he was the first to trace the Red River in 1852, which Pike and Long had not even found. Among his five major expeditions through the West, he drafted the first reasonabley accurate maps of the Southwest, and his advice to his military superiors led to the establishment of the chain of 'Cross Timbers' forts from Fort Smith to New Mexico and the location of a number of Indian reservations." from the jacket flap.
