Long's journals are especially valuable for their firsthand observations of the Midwest and its people in the early 1800s, with references to many Indian peoples, including the Assiniboine, Dakota, Iroquois, Menominee, Ojibway, Osage, Ottawa, Potawatomi, Sauk, Winnebago, and Yanktonai.Hide synopsis

"Stephen Harriman Long was an American Army officer with a particular zest for leading expeditions into the unexplored American West. Between 1816 and 1823, Long headed five expeditions that traveled an estimated 26, 000 miles from the Atlantic Coast to the Rocky Mountains and from the headwaters of the Canadian River in New Mexico to Lake Winnipeg in Canada. This book deals with two of his northern journeys--the only two for which the explorer's personal journals are known to have survived. Published here for the first time are fully annotated, accurate transcriptions of Long's day-by-day accounts of the expeditions of 1817 and 1823."
