About this Item

JENKINS, Thomas J. Six Seasons on Our Prairies and Six Weeks in Our Rockies. Louisville, Ky.: Chas. A. Rogers, 1884. 218,[1]pp. 12mo. Original blue cloth, stamped in blind and gilt, spine gilt. Cloth slightly worn. Old ex-lib. marks of a seminary library, with bookplate on front pastedown, and discreet circular ink stamp on titlepage. Very good. Howes J-95. Eberstadt 106:170. A lively journal of an extended stay in the upper Plains and Rocky Mountain region. In journal fashion, Jenkins relates his experiences in Minnesota in the first half of the text, while the rest describes the Dakotas, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, and Colorado. A devout Catholic, Jenkins also includes much information on the Catholic missions and churches of the region, as well as his prescriptions for spreading the faith westward. The Eberstadts note a work with nearly the same title and similarly paginated also published in 1884 but "privately printed." Not in Wynar. Scarce. Bookseller Inventory # 45182
