Excerpt from Travels Through the Interior Parts of North America, in the Years 1766, 1767, 1768

Those are still living who recollect the impression pro duced by the first publication of this interesting work the countries of which it treats, the novelty of its incidents, the peculiarities of Indian character described, gave to it the charm of Romance, and it was in the hands of all ages; but its subjects were so novel, so unknown, so in capable of realization by comparison with those which were familiar, that full credence in the accuracy of its re citals, as in those of old Marco Polo, and of some other visiters of strange lands of much more modern date, re mained to be established by the future.

That future has arrived; the narration of each succeed ing Traveller has borne testimony, always involuntary, and sometimes reluctant testimony, to the accuracy of the gen eral knowledge of the glorious West which Carver obtained from its savage denizens during his residence among them, while none have presented more graphic descriptions ofthese scenes on which his own vision rested than himself; and, still more recently, the pictorial illustrations of Catlin, and the actual presence among us of delegations of the swarthy warriors of those tribes in which he had been for a while domesticated, have stamped upon his accounts of their manners and customs undeniable evidence of their truth, and imparted to them a freshness ofinterest that will amply compensate to the general reader the time he may beguile in their perusal; while those who hold proprietary rights in the Carver grant, or, having the world before them where to choose, look anxiously towards the West, may gleam from these pages much that may gladden the pres ent, and array the future in the bright hues of well-founded hope.
