Annotation Lieutenant James William Abert of the United States Army Topographical Engineers received orders in 1845 to explore an area covering present-day Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma. Although this land was still in Mexican territory, Abert set out from Bent's Fort, Colorado to conduct a detailed reconnaissance. His journal provided graphic descriptions of the birds, plants, and animals he encountered, as well as clear depictions of the countryside. Moreover, his firsthand account of the Kiowas and Comanches contains valuable information not previously available.
