Moreau de St. Méry's American journey (1793-1798)
by M. L. E. Moreau de Saint-Méry, Kenneth Lewis Roberts, Anna S. Roberts (Mosser), Stewart Lea Mims
Long out of print books like this one is why Alibris is so invaluable! Kenneth Roberts was not only a masterful historical novelist, he was also an avid collector of original diaries like his MARCH TO QUEBEC and this account of life in the fledgling US. Full of color, somewhat partisan, but always a delightful read makes this book a great addition to any historical collection.
