Reseña del editor:

Jonathan Carver’s Travels through the Interior Parts of North America, in the Years 1766, 1767, and 1768 became a bestseller in London in the 1780s, and arguments over its author’s accuracy and honesty have raged ever since. This book published for the first time the well-known explorer’s original account of his expedition. Editor John Parker compares and interweaves the four manuscript versions of Carver’s journals discovered in the twentieth century in the British Museum to form the text of this book. Also included are the hitherto unpublished journal of veteran fur trader James Stanley Goddard, who accompanied Carver; related correspondence; a Dakota dictionary; commissions and other records; and a bibliography of major editions of the Travels. In this volume John Parker explains the alleged plagiarism, examines Carver’s early life, and offers new information on the land swindle in the Midwest known as the “Carver grant.” Editor John Parker was curator of the James Ford Bell Library at the University of Minnesota, a collection specializing in early travel and exploration.
