eBook (ePub): $1.99
“It is now twenty-six years since I first entered the area of the Mississippi valley, with the view of exploring its then but imperfectly known features, geographical and geological. Twenty-two... More > years of this period have elapsed since I entered on the duties of an Executive Agent for the United States Government in its higher northern latitudes among the Indian tribes in the west. Having devoted so large a portion of my life in an active sphere, in which the intervals of travel left me favourable opportunities of pursuing the languages and history of this branch of the race, it appears to be a just expectation, that, in sitting down to give some account of this people, there should be some preliminary remarks, to apprise the reader how and why it is, that his attention is recalled to a topic which he may have supposed to be well nigh exhausted.

RUFF was organized to establish homes for unwanted neglected animals on... More > the Navajo Reservation.

The curriculum was nominated by teachers and administrators in 1996 and went on to win the 1st place Golden Bell award from the ASBA as the best new curriculum that year.< Less
