Three Years Among the Indians and Mexicans by Thomas James



Accounts of Trading expeditions in New Mexico. Extraordinary high adventure and a treasure of frontier names, places, and customs. A new historical introduction and notes. In 1809 Thomas James joined up with the Missouri Fur Company to trap beaver on the upper river, but he was cheated, left the party and struck out on his own. He and his companions faced starvation and hostile natives constantly. In one desperate situation he escaped his Indian captors and ran naked for days eluding his pursuers.
