About this product
- DescriptionIn 1806, U.S. Army General James Wilkinson assigned Lieutenant Zebulon Montgomery Pike to explore the headwaters of the Arkansas and Red rivers. Throughout the journey, Pike maintained a journal, describing terrain, Indians, hardships, and the group's daily activities. In present-day southern Colorado's San Luis Valley, Pike and his men were captured by the Spanish. Many of his papers were confiscated by Spanish authorities, t to be uncovered until the early twentieth century. This long-out-of-print edition of Pike's journals, edited by Hart and Hulbert, provides extensive commentary, as well as significant essays on Pike's papers and the purpose of his famed expedition.
