Landscapes of Removal and Resistance: Edwin James's Nineteenth-Century Cross-Cultural Collaborations
Lyndgaard, Kyhl
Great Plains Quarterly, v30 n1 p37-52 Win 2010
The life of Edwin James (1797-1861) is bookended by the Lewis and Clark expedition (1803-6) and the Civil War (1861-65). James's work engaged key national concerns of western exploration, natural history, Native American relocation, and slavery. His principled stands for preservation of lands and animals in the Trans-Mississippi West and his opposition to Indian relocation should be celebrated today, yet his legacy does not fit neatly into established literary or historical categories.
