La Charrette Village

Interested in what Lewis & Clark, Daniel Boone, Zebulon Pike, John Colter, President Jefferson and other notables thought about America's newly acquired westernmost village? Enjoy the west...before it became distorted by TV, movies and novels.

Location: Port Aransas, Texas, United States

A retired professor of Food and Animal Science at Texas A&M University, The University of Connecticut and Texas Tech. A cowboy in my previous life...never thought about being a professor or an author.

The Lives of Native Americans

Native American life was equally sophisticated to that of frontier settlers as demonstrated in this picture. Here a large cottonwood log is being crafted into a canoe. Notice the array of tools required to accomplish the task. These and other skills were shared with settlers, just as the settlers shared skills unique to them with the Native Americans. Picture taken at the Lewis and Clark Rendezvous Celebration of May 2004 in Marthasville Park, Warren County, Missouri.

The title link directs you to Chapter 4, pages 27 - 37, of La Charrette. Here you may study an overview of daily Native American life on the Missouri River. From page 27, it will be possible to proceed two pages further in either direction. Next enter page '32' in the Google search engine provided and repeat the process to continue through this chapter five pages at a time.

To learn more of Native American cultural developments along the Missouri River proceed to http://coas.missouri.edu/mas/articles/articlemotimeperiods.html Here you may develop a greater appreciation for their archaeological past and how it influenced cultural advanced across time. Many other such webpages are available.
