Scarce map of the region from the Trinity River to Mobile Bay, based upon Page du Pratz’s Histoire de la Louisiane . . . , including the travels of an Indian named Moncacht-ape.
The map depicts the region in excellent detail, including early forts, settlement and Indian Villages.
Page Du Pratz work affords a great deal of useful information on the Natchez and other Mississippi tribes, which was heavily utilized in later works.
