Three Years Travels throughout the Interior Parts of North America

Bookplate residue on front pastedown. Page vii loose. Dampstains and foxing with pages 60-73 especially darkened. Chip from bottom of p. 275 and rear free endpaper. Carver set out by boat in 1766 seeking a water route across the continent. He explored the West more extensively than any other British explorer had yet, and his book sparked other interest in finding a route to the Pacific. His descriptions are detailed accounts of the surprises one might expect as a pioneer in rough territory. Particularly of note are his observations on the culture of the Native inhabitants of the region; the book is an important early reference in Native and Colonial studies. Originally published in 1778 under the title Travels through the interior parts of North America in the years 1766, 1767, and 1768. Sabin 11185. Howes 215.
