Hunting and Trading on the Great Plains, 1859-1875 by James R. Mead
This lively memoir, long out of print, chronicles his life and experiences in Kansas from Territorial days to early statehood. In it we are taken along pioneer trails to Indian camps, sometimes in the company of Jesse Chisholm, William “Buffalo Bill” Matthewson, and Kit Carson; at other times with famous Indians such as Satanta, War Chief of the Kiowas. Mr. Mead’s career on the plains began as a buffalo hunter, which he soon abandoned in favor of trading with the Indians, and then went on to become a town founder and State Senator.
