Kentucky to New Orleans! John Halley's River Journals, 1789 & 1791 By Harry G. Enoch
Paperback: $8.99
Ships in 3-5 business days
John Halley’s journals provide the earliest first-hand accounts of the voyage down the Kentucky, Ohio and Mississippi rivers to New Orleans. Not only does he provide insightful accounts of... More > what would become one of Kentucky’s major early industries—shipping goods and produce by flatboat to the port of New Orleans—but he does so almost at the birth of that industry, just two years after Gen. James Wilkinson’s inaugural trip in 1787. Although rivermen often suffered at the hands of Native Americans and Spanish officials, Halley seems to have gotten along well with everyone he met. He describes every encounter and tells of shooting the rapids at the Falls of Ohio (Louisville), getting stuck on a sandbar, breaking his steering oar, almost losing one of the men in a pile of driftwood, and many other adventures. He was a keen observer and comments on hunting and fishing along the way, local flora and fauna, weather and river conditions, settlements, and notable landmarks.< Less

Independence of spirit, impatience of restraint, the inquisitive nature, and the nomadic temperament -- these are the strains in the American character of the eighteenth century which ultimately... More > blended to create a typical democracy. The rolling of wave after wave of settlement westward across the American continent, with a reversion to primitive conditions along the line of the farthest frontier, and a marked rise in the scale of civilization at each successive stage of settlement, from the western limit to the eastern coast, exemplifies from one aspect the history of the American people during two centuries. The splendid inauguration of the period, in the region of the Carolinas, Virginia, Tennessee, and Kentucky, during the second half of the eighteenth century, is the theme of this story of the pioneers of the Old Southwest.< Less
