Jesse Chisholm: Ambassador of the Plains


Author: Stan Hoig

The Jesse Chisholm Ambassador of The Plains book by Stan Hoig.

Explore the Chisholm Trail which was named for mixed-blood Cherokee Jesse Chisholm (1805-1868). Jesse was active on the frontier long before the trail was named after him. Jesse left no diaries, letters, or personal documents. Drawing from newspaper clippings, federal documents, trade and military documents, the author was able to capture his adventures and achievements to date of the many roles that he played on the Chisholm Trail. Jesse was known to be many things, such as a trailblazer, friend to the Native Americans and liaison between Native American tribes, the U.S. Government and the Republic of Texas.
