Exploring the Upper Mississippi

Joseph Nicollet Book

by Martha Coleman Bray

At last we have a long-awaited biography of Joseph Nicollet, the brave and tireless explorer in 1838 and 1839 of the great northwestern triangle between the Missouri and the upper Mississippi rivers. The author of this work, Martha Coleman Bray, has founded her very readable story on Nicollet's journals, survey documents, correspondence and published writings.
