Accounts of Trading expeditions in New Mexico. Extraordinary high adventure and a treasure of frontier names, places, and customs. A new historical introduction and notes. In 1809 Thomas James joined up with the Missouri Fur Company to trap beaver on the upper river, but he was cheated, left the party and struck out on his own. He and his companions faced starvation and hostile natives constantly. In one desperate situation he escaped his Indian captors and ran naked for days eluding his pursuers.
Reviews about Three Years Among the Indians and Mexicans (6):
Vivaral
This easy to read description of the years in the 1830's in the west tell how one man felt as though he could earn a living in a most difficult way while risking his life for his fortune.
Gugrel
The descriptions of persons, events, and the countryside make it seem like you are there, especially if - like me - you are familiar with the areas he describes. Even if you are not all that familiar, your understanding of the times will be greatly enhanced by reading this book.

Very good book

Lakeside Classics were really scraping the bottom of the barrel re-printing this one. This is mostly just a long list of whiny complaints about the author's hard-luck in his efforts to trade with the Indians. He made three attemmpts and lost his shirt big-time each time.

There's some occasional nice material about frontier travel and interactions with the Indians, but the author's bitter, self-absorbed attitude always intrudes and spoils it. Charles Larpenteur's narrative and Chardon's journal shared this miserable attitude. After all, these guys weren't out there for their health, selflessly bringing civilized enlightenment to the poor savages. It was a rough and tumble life and they took a lot of hard knocks, and some of them didn't take it with much good grace.

You're better off reading Ross Cox (but beware for the Narrative Press edition) or Alexander MacKenzie's journal, or just about anything besides this bad-smelling item.

A lively, descriptive and exciting narrative of Thomas James' adventures up the Missouri River in 1809-1810 and to Sante Fe in the years 1821-1823. His writing abilities are brilliant and the reader will find themself anxiously flipping through the pages to see what happens next. In 1809 James joined the St.Louis Missouri Fur Company and relates the experiences of his crew being mistreated by Manuel Lisa, then joining up with John Colter, along with several other personal accounts of the day to day activities and survival strategies they encountered. He was one of the first to describe and take part in the trade business from St. Louis to Sante Fe and it is absorbing to read of his confrontations with the Comanches and the Spanish during these years. This is a must read for early American West enthusiasts.The book itself may be difficult to find, but it is certainly well worth the effort.

Review of “Three Years with the Indians and Mexicans,” by Thomas James
My journey to reading Thomas James “Three Years with the Mexicans and Indians” has taken a rather unusual course. While researching my ancestry I discovered that Thomas James was my third great grandfather. I became interested in his life and thereby found out about his book.
Thomas James traveled the rivers to the west of St. Louis, Missouri in his first expedition with the Missouri Fur Trading Co. (1809-10), and in his second expedition (1821-23) with his partner, John McKnight, in order to profit from trapping beaver and trading with the Indians.
He entered a world of conflict between Indian tribes and the great political powers of his time, United States, Spain, Mexico, France, England, and Canada. Unbeknownst to him he was to become a major player and recorder of one of the most pivotal moments in the history of the American West, the exploitation of these tribes and the loss of their land to these expanding nations.
The broad public is just now reading this important book. Because of James’outspoken criticism of the treatment of the American Indians, his disdain of Christian religious hypocrisy, and his report revealing partners that defrauded him, copies of his book were destroyed shortly after it was first published in 1846.
In 1916, the Missouri Historical Society decided to publish Thomas James “Three Years with the Indians and Mexicans,” because of its historical importance. Amazon now has made a paperback version available to the public (2017).
Thomas James is a master storyteller. I found a fascinating story on each page. Like many artists and writers who are ahead of their times, Thomas James’ observations, stories, prophecies, and concerns for the beauty of the West and the treatment of the native people who lived there now seem very relevant.
Reading this book takes you back to a time in history when accurate accounts were rare. Through the lucid descriptions of Thomas James, you will become acquainted with twenty American Indian tribes, amazing people and the animals they encounter and live beside. You will share the tragedy, danger, passion and fear this early American pioneer to the West experienced and portrayed in his writing so vividly. This book is a must-read for lovers of the history of the West.
