This was not the case, however. A fascinating account of the exploration for the source of the Mississippi, together with views, descriptive and pictorial, of the cities, towns, villages and scenery on the banks of the river, as seen during a canoe voyage of over three thousand miles from its head waters to the Gulf of Mexico.

A fascinating narrative account of Glaziers journey to the part of the river deemed nearly inaccessible by explorers. Preparation, itinerary to the journey and subsequent events are all captured in this historical account. The photographic illustrations in this volume, taken on a second expedition in 1891, by Fred J. Trost, are purportedly the first such illustrations of the Mississippi headwaters.
