About the Book

George Catlin self educated artist, paintings in oil, water colour, realizing the red man's existence was rapidly becoming adulterated with many exaggerated stories from settlers,so called mountain men, & explorers in general, decided to take off
alone, ill prepared for the adventure ahead, fearlessly into Indian country. His written input is kept to a minimum thus allowing his images to make his statements. With such an honest simplistic approach to his art he was allowed an honesty & realism from his subjects others have failed to capture. Of all the versions shown here, the 1876, Chatto & Windus version is by far the best. It is an amazing digital conversion. All the illustrations are in color and while they are not Catlin's exact illustrations, they are the color copies that were made for this 1876 edition. The person who did this conversion did a wonderful job.
