At the time of the organization of the Coronado expedition, Castañeda was at a Spanish outpost at Culiacán, in northwestern Mexico. He was married and had at least eight children. Castañeda's original account, Relación de la jornada de Cíbola compuesta por Pedro de Castañeda de Nácera donde se trata de todas aquellos poblados y ritos, y costumbres, la cual fué el año de 1540, has been lost, but a copy made in 1596 is in the Lenox Library in New York City. .

Arctic Explorations: The Second Grinnell Expedition in Search of Sir John Franklin, 1853, 54, ‘55

New with no dust jacket. First Edition Thus. First Printing. Hard Cover Publisher's full brown cloth, gilt lettering on spine, gilt Lakeside Press medallion on cover, t.e.g. Illustrated with two fold-out maps, frontispiece and 28 plates, six of which in color. As ship's surgeon Kane had accompanied the first American expedition to search for missing British explorer Sir John Franklin in 1850. "Kane quickly impressed British explorers with his intelligence and traveling experience. In August 1850 the fleet located Franklin's first winter base on Beechey Island, along with the graves of three of Franklin's men. Further searches by the Advance failed to locate Franklin's expedition. The Advance returned to the United States in September 1851. Kane's belief that Franklin might have gone further north persuaded Grinnell and the U.S. Navy to support a second expedition to search for the lost explorers. Kane led this new expedition in the Advance to seek a more northerly route near Greenland. Kane's expedition departed in 1853, traveling northward along the Greenland coast. As the ship entered Smith Sound, the channel separating Greenland from Ellesmere Island, Canada, heavy ice stopped its progress. Rather than retreat to the south, Kane elected to keep his ship in Smith Sound. The ice soon froze around the ship, trapping Kane and his men in the high Arctic for the winter. When spring arrived, Kane sent exploring parties to the north along Smith Sound. One of his men, William Morton, discovered a broad expanse of open water, which he thought was an ocean. Morton's report led Kane to the erroneous conclusion that there was an open polar sea. Kane did chart many new discoveries in what later became known as "the American route to the pole." The 1854 summer thaw failed to release the ship from the ice. Some of Kane's men, fearing that they would not survive another winter in the Arctic, demanded to go south to reach the Greenland settlements. Kane, unable to quell the mutiny, refused to abandon the ship and his sick men. The dissenters, who included Isaac Hayes, then insisted that Kane supply food and equipment for their escape. Kane reluctantly complied. Kane and his remaining men faced a second bleak winter in the Arctic. While strong men wilted, Kane, the invalid, became a pillar of strength. The innovative doctor traded with the local Inuit for food. He also used the bountiful supply of the ship's rats for food and as a remedy for scurvy. When Kane learned that the deserters were starving, he sent them food and assisted their return to the ship. During the summer of 1855 Kane successfully led his men south to the Greenland settlements. He quickly became the United States' first Arctic hero. From across the Atlantic, Franklin's wife implored Kane to come to England to organize a new search for her husband. The British government and the prestigious Royal Geographical Society also wished to honor the American hero. In October 1856 Kane reluctantly saile

Death Valley in '49
 Picture
Publisher: R. R. Donnelley & Sons Company / The Lakeside Press, Chicago, 1927.
Near Fine with no dust jacket. First Edition Thus. First Printing. Hard Cover Publisher's full green cloth, gilt lettering on spine, gilt border and publisher's medallion, gilt, on cover, t.e.g., fore-edge deckle. Illustrated with tissue-protected frontispiece and fold-out map. William Lewis Manly (1820-1903) was an American pioneer of the mid-19th century. He was first a fur hunter, a guide of Westward bound caravans, a seeker of gold and then a farmer and writer in his later years. He wrote an autobiography, first published with the title "From Vermont to California, " then a second edition with the title "Death Valley in '49, " which tells of the pioneer experience in America's Far West, in particular the 1848 California Gold Rush. In December 1848, at age 29, Manly traversed California's Death Valley (today the centerpiece of Death Valley National Park) as a member of a group of emigrant pioneers traveling overland from Salt Lake City, Utah to the California gold rush (the Death Valley '49ers). These pioneers became lost in the Great Basin Desert, and entered Death Valley, having followed an inaccurate map for three weeks. Their food supplies were almost exhausted, and the oxen pulling their wagons were dying of starvation. Manly, with his associate John Haney Rogers, trekked 250 miles on foot across the Mojave Desert to Rancho San Fernando near Los Angeles, California, to scout an evacuation route for the families trapped in Death Valley, and procure food and horses if a settlement could be located. The volume shows only the slightest shelf-wear, else pristine, unmarked, tight, square and clean. NEAR FINE. The Lakeside Classics Series. Vol. 25.

Pike, Zebulon M.; Milo Milton Quaife (ed)  
The Southwestern Expedition of Zebulon M. Pike
 Picture
Publisher: R. R. Donnelley & Sons Company / The Lakeside Press, Chicago, 1925.
Very Good with no dust jacket. First Edition Thus. First Printing. Hard Cover Publisher's full green cloth, gilt lettering on spine, gilt border and publisher's medallion, gilt, on cover, t.e.g., fore-edge deckle. Gift card from R. R. Donnelley & Sons laid in. Illustrated with Tissue-Protected engraved portrait frontispiece and fold-out map. Pike's narrative was originally published in Philadelphia in 1810 as "An Account of Expeditions to the Sources of the Mississippi, and through the Western Parts of Louisiana, to the Sources of the Arkansaw, Kans, La Platte, and Pierre Jaun, Rivers; performed by Order of the Government of the United States during the Years 1805, 1806 and 1807, and a Tour through the Interior Parts of New Spain, when conducted through these Provences, by Order of the Captain-General, in the Year 1807." Zebulon Montgomery Pike (1779-1813) was an American brigadier general and explorer for whom Pikes Peak in Colorado is named. As a United States Army captain in 1806–1807, he led the Pike Expedition, sent out by President Thomas Jefferson, to explore and document the southern portion of the Louisiana territory and to find the headwaters of the Red River, during which he recorded the discovery of what later was called Pikes Peak. The Pike expedition coincided with other Jefferson expeditions including the Lewis and Clark Expedition (1804–1806) and the Thomas Freeman and Peter Custis expedition (1806). The Pike Expedition traveled through present-day Colorado after his party confused their location. This led to capture by Spanish, who sent Pike and his men to Chihuahua (present-day Mexico), and to questioning by the governor. They were released later in 1807 at the border of Louisiana. In 1810 Pike published an account of his expeditions, a book so popular that it was translated into French, German and Dutch for publication in Europe. He later achieved the rank of brigadier general in the Army, serving during the War of 1812. He was killed during the Battle of York, which was won by the United States.

The Fur Hunters of the Far West: A Narrative of Adventures in the Oregon and Rocky Mountains

Publisher: The Lakeside Press / R. R. Donnelley & Sons, Chicago, 1924.
Very Good+ with no dust jacket. First Edition Thus. First Printing. Hard Cover Publisher's full green cloth, gilt lettering on spine, gilt border and publisher's medallion, gilt, on cover, t.e.g., fore-edge deckle. Illustrated with Tissue-Protected engraved frontispiece view of Fort Nez Perces. Alexander Ross (1783-1856), born in Morayshire, Scotland, was a fur trader and author. In 1811, while working for John Jacob Astor's Pacific Fur Company, Ross took part in the founding of Fort Astoria, a fur-trading post at the mouth of the Columbia River. During the same year he led a detachment up the Columbia River and founded Fort Okanogan where during the winter he was the sole PFC employee at the trading post. Ross joined the North West Company in 1813, after they acquired the fort and renamed it Fort George. In 1814 Alexander Ross and three Indians crossed the North Cascades on a project of discovery. In 1818 Ross acted as scribe for a trading party from the North West Company who traveled within sight of the Teton Range in modern Wyoming. He and trapper Daniel Potts apparently viewed some of the thermal features of what is today Yellowstone National Park. Each of them produced an account of these features. In July 1818 Fort Nez Perces was established by the North West Company under the direction of Ross and Donald MacKenzie on the east bank of the Columbia River.
