the travel diaries and autobiography of Dr. Rowland Willard
Description matérielle : 279 pages
Abstract : "Dr. Rowland Willard traveled from St. Charles, Missouri, to Taos, New Mexico, in 1825, where he spent three months before moving on to Chihuahua, Mexico, where he practiced medicine for three years before returning to the United States. He kept trail diaries for his travels and later wrote an autobiography based on his recollections and diaries. Dr. Willard thus became only the third traveler to keep an account of traveling the Santa Fe Trail from its inception in 1821 and the first medical doctor to do so. His accounts, now in the rare book and manuscript collections of the Beinecke Library at Yale, are also some of the earliest of an American in Mexico. Poole has transcribed, edited, annotated, and introduced the material in a single volume"
