Summary
This extensive, five-volume collection, drawn from the original copies in the Texas State Archives, provides invaluable source materials on Texas' Indians. The set contains official letters, documents, reports, and treaties relating to Texas' Indian tribes: vol. I, 1825{u2013}1843; vol. II, 1844{u2013}1845; vol. III, 1846-1859; vol. IV, 1860{u2013}1916; vol. V, 1846-1859. The fifth volume, a supplement, consists of letters from the Executive Department. In all, there are more than 1,600 documents in 2,000-plus pages, including letters by Sam Houston, Randolph B. Marcy, Kit Carson, Jack Hays, Henry B. Schoolcraft, Rip Ford, and others. Each volume is indexed separately and thoroughly. The documents are rich in first-hand reports of encounters, both friendly and hostile, with Indians. They present important insights into the Indians as seen through the eyes of Texans, and therefore they reveal much about the cultural attitudes of the time and place. First published as the Texas Indian Papers by the Texas State Library in four volumes between 1959 and 1961, and reprinted by Pemberton Press in 1966 with a fifth supplemental volume, this rare set has long been out of print and unavailable to scholars and collectors. This new facsimile edition of the five-volume set, with a valuable new scholarly introduction, makes this indispensable collection available once again.
