Commerce of the Prairies: Life on the Great Plains in the 1830's and 1840's

by

Commerce of the Prairies: Life on the Great Plains in the 1830's and 1840's Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gregg crossed and recrossed the Great Plains four times as a trader, frontiersman and trail-blazer in the 1830's and 40's. His epic account of early Santa Fe trade has been used as a guide by historians, naturalists and sociologists because of its accuracy and detail. "Commerce of the Prairies" gives a remarkably clear view of the country as it was when white people first arrived. Gregg describes the thrill of a buffalo hunt, the disappointment of a desert mirage, and the terror of an Indian attack with first-hand immediacy.

Synopsis:

Gregg's epic account of early Santa Fe has been used as a guide by historians, naturalists, and sociologists because of its accuracy and detail.
