Thomas McKenney’s “Memoirs” is one of the best mid-19th-century accounts of travels among Native American Indians! Published in 1846, “Memoirs Official and Personal” describes McKenney’s adventures on the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers, interactions with the Winnebagoes, living among the Cherokee and Creek peoples, and his attempts at improving the living conditions of Indians through political persuasion. Note that this first edition contains numerous full-page engravings including the highly coveted, hand-colored illustration of Pocahontas!

 

Larned’s perspective on this book is important:

“McKenney was appointed superintendent of the US trade with the Indian tribes…. He had great faith in the fundamental worth of the Indian, and has much to say in regard to the ‘abominable abuse of power’ of the government with the Indians. In 1826 he made an extensive trip in order to negotiate a treaty with the Chippewa Indians.”
