Minnesota and Dacotah: Letters descriptive of a Tour through the North-West, in the Autumn of 1856...
by Andres, C. C.

Publisher Information:
Washington: Robert Farnham, 1857.

First edition. 215pp. (Howes calls for a map, but I can find no record of a copy with a map and John Jenkins in a catalog states that he has never seen one thus.) Original embossed cloth, some external wear with minor loss at the top of the spine, library stamp on title page, slightly cocked, withal a very good copy. This is Andrews' account of his travels in a series of letters. He describes the scenery, settlers, Native Americans, and potential of the region. A lawyer himself, he has an entire chapter on the bar of Minnesota and "chances for lawyers in the West." A short concluding chapter deals with "The Proposed New Territory of Dacatoah." Howes A253.
