      American Journeys: Eyewitness Accounts of Early American Exploration and
      Settlement
      http://www.americanjourneys.org/index.asp


      American Journeys contains more than 18,000
      pages of eyewitness accounts of North American
      exploration, from the sagas of Vikings in Canada
      in AD1000 to the diaries of mountain men in the
      Rockies 800 years later.

      Read the words of explorers, Indians, missionaries,
      traders and settlers as they lived through the founding
      moments of American history. View, search, print,
      or download more than 150 rare books, original
      manuscripts, and classic travel narratives from the
      library and archives of the Wisconsin Historical Society.

      Documents were selected to provide a wide range of
      geographical, cultural, and chronological information
      about the exploration of North America by Europeans
      and, later, Americans. Roughly equal numbers of pages
      are devoted to each of six regions: the Northeast,
      Southeast, Great Lakes and Mississippi Valley, Great
      Plains and Rocky Mountains, Southwest and California,
      and Pacific Northwest and Hawaii. Culturally, works by
      Spanish, French and English writers necessarily
      predominate but Russian, Dutch, German, Italian, and
      Native American authors are also well represented (the
      last usually embedded within documents produced by
      whites). In general, the earliest eyewitness accounts
      from each geographic region were selected, along with
      others that have become "classic" through widespread
      quotation or republication.
