A rare account of early Iowa including an account of the Indian massacres at New Ulm and Spirit Lake. From a 1953 Midland catalogue: "The little Ingham books described above are a remarkable series of unpretentious publications containing long extracts from original journals, letters and contemporary newspaper accounts. Privately issued in small editions they are now most elusive, and destined to become sought-after rarities" (Midland Notes, No. 56, Iowa).

William H. Ingham (1827-1914), born in Herkimer County, New York, headed overland for the California gold fields in 1849, though ended up settling in Iowa and exploring western Iowa and Minnesota.
