KIRKUS REVIEW

The complete journals, never before published, illustrated with maps and Par man's line drawings. These journals include Parkman's explorations of the old West, source material of The Oregon Trail, his visits to the scenes of his histories, and later travels across America and Europe. The editor published a biography of Parkman some years ago on Viking's list and contributes explanatory notes although the journal reveal both the historian and man, painstaking, ascetic, hypochrondriacal, Brahmin of Boston Brahmins.... For a long term rather than an immediate sale.
