This reissue of an extremely rare collection, first published anonymously in Boston in 1830, rescues from undeserved oblivion, a story-teller rivaling James Fenimore Cooper. William Joseph Snelling (1803-48), son of Colonel Josiah Snelling, for whom Fort Snelling was named, spent seven years of the 1820's among the Indians in the territory now occupied by Minnesota, North and South Dakota, Iowa, and Wisconsin. As an outgrowth of his experience, he wrote Tales of the Northwest, subtitled "Tales of Indian Life and Character by a Resident beyond the Frontier". This was the first work of fiction to deal with the Northwest and one of the earliest short story collections published in America. First edition of the work in this format and binding, and/or set or series. Size: 8.1 x 5.4 x 1.3 inches. 252 pages. Photos available on request.. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.
