Samuel Parker was an early 19th century missionary who chronicled his trek, and mapped what he found in the West, from Council Bluffs (Iowa) to the great Oregon territory. In the accompanying text he notes that, "The most of what is narrated came under the author's personal observation, and whatever is stated which did not, was obtained from gentlemen connected with the Hudson Bay Company, whose reputation for honesty and candor...is well established." Shows a great glimpse of the West from "Long's Peak" and the Kansas River to well into today's Canada, noting many place names and native tribes.
