12 The Missouri Harmony: or a Collection of Psalm and Hymn Tunes, and Anthems
Allen D. Carden Introduction by Shirley Bean
240 pages, paperback, University of Nebraska Press
The Missouri Harmony was the most popular of all frontier tunebooks, with a history going back to 1820, when singing master Allen Carden introduced it into his St. Louis school. The 185 selections in The Missouri Harmony, compiled from earlier tunebooks, were old favorites used in churches and singing schools which sometimes convened in taverns. Abraham Lincoln and his sweetheart, Ann Rutledge, are said to have sung from The Missouri Harmony at her father's tavern in New Salem, Illinois. Shirley Bean points out in her introduction the importance of tunebooks and frontier singing schools in teaching Americans to read music. The Missouri Harmony, continuing the European tradition of shaped notes, contained the largest collection of compositions for congregations and choirs. Carden included thirty-seven fuguing tunes, among them "Lenox" and "Sherburne." The Supplement, added in the seventh edition in 1835, contains twenty-three hymn tunes, four choral numbers, a sacred song, and a duet; Isaac Watts was the author of most of the texts. This Bison Book edition duplicates the 1846 reprint of the popular ninth edition, which first came out in 1840. Shirley Bean's introduction provides a historical framework that will be welcomed not only by scholars but also by the modern shape-note singing community. Dr. Bean is an assistant professor at the Conservatory of Music, University of Missouri--Kansas City.

Wheel Boats on the Missouri, edited by Richard E. Jensen and James S. Hutchins

14 Wheel Boats on the Missouri
edited by Richard E. Jensen and James S. Hutchins
276 pages, 6 1/4 x 9 1/4, paperback, Montana Historical Society Press
In 1824 Brig. Gen. Henry Atkinson and Indian Agent Benjamin O'Fallon traveled up the Missouri River, along with 475 soldiers of the First and Sixth Infantry regiments. Their mission: to negotiate peace treaties with tribes along the Missouri River and to secure their promise to trade exclusively with American citizens. It was hoped this combination of military power and proffered friendship would put an end to the Indian attacks on American fur trappers and traders. The full record of this early military expedition is now available. The diaries of General Atkinson and Maj. Stephen Watts Kearny describe the trip from St. Louis to Fort Atkinson in the fall of 1824, the expedition from the fort to the Yellowstone River and back in 1825, and the return of a portion of troops to St. Louis in 1826, while the diary of Angus Lewis Langham, the expedition's secretary, describes the passage of the wheel boat Antelope from St. Louis to Fort Atkinson in early spring of 1825.

Lives and Letters of an Immigrant Family: The Van Dreveldts' Experiences along the Missouri, 1844-1866, Kenneth Kronenberg

20 Lives and Letters of an Immigrant Family: The Van Dreveldts' Experiences along the Missouri, 1844-1866
Kenneth Kronenberg
218 pages, Illus., maps., cloth, University of Nebraska Press
Anton and Theodor van Dreveldt grew up in Emmerich, Prussia, as the sons of a Catholic priest and his housekeeper-a situation their father tried to disguise by presenting himself as their uncle. As young men, both Anton and Theodor found their lives increasingly troubled. Anton drank heavily, and Theodor's career was jeopardized by his participation in a banned political organization.
These troubles, combined with growing Prussian authoritarianism, led to their independent emigrations to the United States, Theodor in 1844 and Anton in 1849. Theodor, tormented by malaria and financial difficulties, returned to Germany, but Anton and his son Bernhard, who emigrated after Theodor's return, remained. This separation helped produce a remarkable body of correspondence describing the van Dreveldts' often troubled relationships with each other, their homeland, and America. Their letters compare the age-old tribulations of Europe against the promise and challenges of a new country. The van Dreveldts' experiences provide a fascinating glimpse into the complexities of immigrant life."
