Description:
1843 True 1st INDIAN Tribes Lang & Taylor Report on Cherokee Native Americans
John Lang and Samuel Taylor were 19th-century American explorers who are remembered for their time spent with Native American Indians. Wagner-Camp's notes on this expedition:
"Lang and Taylor were members of the Society of Friends who visited the Indians recently removed from east of the Mississippi to the trans-Mississippi regions. Their report was presented to the Yearly Meeting of the Friends of New England and New York before being published under the above title . They visited the Winnebagoes, Shawnees, Kickapoos, Delawares, Kansas, Osages, Cherokees, and Choctaws, between August and December 1842"
This report is unquestionably one of the best and most authentic accounts of first-hand observations of the Cherokee and other notable American Indian tribes.
Graff notes that this New York edition came before the Providence edition of the same year. A true first printing!
