Ross, Alexander; Milo Milton Quaife (ed)  
Adventures of the First Settlers on the Oregon or Columbia River: Being a Narrative of the Expedition fitted out by John Jacob Astor, to establish the Pacific Fur Company with an account of some Indian Tribes on the Coas

Publisher: The Lakeside Press / R. R. Donnelley & Sons, Chicago, 1923.
Near Fine with no dust jacket. First Edition. First Printing. Hard Cover Publisher's dark green boards, gilt lettering on spine, gilt medallion and border on cover, t.e.g., fore-edge and bottom edges deckle, fold-out map of northwest region of U.S. ca. 1850. Alexander Ross (1783-1856) 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. During his solitary posting, Ross' hair greyed from the stress of being socially isolated among the welcoming Syilx people, "savages who had never seen a white man before." 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, with Ross reporting that "..boiling fountain having different degrees of temperature were very numerous; one or two were so very hot as to boil meat." Ross explored various territories of the Pacific Northwest. In 1824, while searching the mountain wilderness of what is present day Idaho, known to them as Columbia District, for beaver, Ross came up the Wood River and discovered Galena Summit on September 18. Leading a large brigade of Hudson's Bay Company trappers, he wondered if he could get through unknown mountains and rocky defiles that obstructed his passage back to his base of operations at present Challis. Unwilling to turn back he pressed on to explore Stanley Basin and the difficult canyon beyond. When he reached Challis on October 5, 1824, he had traveled the route now followed by Idaho State Highway 75 from Bellevue to Salmon through mostly unexplored land. Very slight wear to head and heel of spine, pages yellowed, else fine. NEAR FINE. The Lakeside Classics Series. Vol. 21. Map. 16mo 6" - 7" tall. xvii, 388 pp
