‘History of the discovery and settlement of the valley of the Mississippi’ is the history of the Americas along and around the Mississippi river. It is told primarily from the perspective of the Indian Wars between Native Americans and France, Spain, and Great Britain.

“The first volume is principally occupied with a relation of the French and Spanish discovery of the territory, and the association of the colonial governments of these nations with the Indians, and their wars with the various tribes inhabiting it. Much of the larger portion of Vol. II. is devoted to a narration of the Indian wars of the States bordering the Ohio. The work is probably the best of the numerous class of books on the subject of western history” (Field).

  • First Spanish discoveries in Florida 1512 to 1538 —
  • Exploration of the Mississippi River by La Salle: his colony on the Colorado 1673 to 1696 –
