234 pages, maps, illustrations. In May, 1876, a party of army engineers, teamsters, and a civilian draftsman with a military escort departed from Fort Elliott in the Texas Panhandle to explore the headwaters of the Red River. This compilation of their reports has been available only to a limited audience, and this revised version includes the survey party's ornithological report and a new introduction, which focuses on the reports as environmental history. William "Billy" Dixon was one of the civilian scouts, contains a photo of him.
