It is intended that the series as a whole shall present a thoroughgoing picture of the processes of American exploration and settlement, giving attention also to movements which continue even into the present.
Behind the story of the gradual and inevitable recession of the American frontier lie the accounts of explorers, traders, and travelers, some of them by native Americans, others by foreigners, which individually and in the aggregate, present one of the most romantic and fascinating chapters in the development of the American domain.
Many of these accounts have remained up to the present in manuscript form; others have been published in a limited way and, as such, have been little known to the general public and largely unavailable to scholars
