Barber and Howe go west! This 1868 collaboration from American historians John Warner Barber (1798-1885) and Henry Howe (1816-1893) covers “the history from the earliest times,” including descriptions of interesting “incidents from pioneer life.” Nearly 250 illustrations of natural curiosities, battlefields, monuments, and public buildings add to the charm of this vast collection of history from twenty-one states (Alabama, Arkansas, California, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, West Virginia, and Wisconsin) and nine territories (Arizona, Colorado, Dacotah [sic], Idaho, Indian [Territory], Montana, New Mexico, Utah, and Washington). This first-rate gazetteer will afford many hours of enjoyment, especially if your ancestors were part of the 19th-century movement of settlers into the American West.
