In advising emigrants entering the Pacific Northwest, Captain Mullan furnishes a day-by-day itinerary of the route from Fort Benton, on the Missouri River, through the mountains to the Walla Walla in Washington Territory. After these directions he continues with a general description of the resources of the entire region, including the text of an address that he made to the American Geographical and Statistical Society of New York entitled "The Geography, Topography and Resources of the Northwestern Territories." This work contains an excellent account of the mountain regions of the Northwest with particulars of the firsts discoveries of gold in Idaho and Montana. Wagner-Camp 420a. Graff 2933. Howes M885.
