About the Authors
  • The American artist George Catlin (1796–1872) was fascinated by the indigenous people of his homeland and spent many years living among them, painting them, and collecting their artefacts. In 1839 he took his vast collection to Europe to exhibit it, and he also toured with groups of visiting Native Americans. This illustrated two-volume account of his experiences was published in 1848. Volume 1 discusses such events as introducing a group of Native Americans to Queen Victoria. The appendices feature press reviews and a catalogue of the collection. Volume 2 covers travels with visiting Native Americans to Dublin, and later Paris, where Catlin staged another exhibition and met King Louis Philippe. Catlin's earlier account, Letters and Notes on the Manners, Customs, and Condition of the North American Indians (1841), is also reissued in this series, along with two later books for children about life among various tribes.
