From the Colton Storm catalogue: "Miss Archibald traveled alone in the 1840s on Ohio and Mississippi steamboats, by buggy across Indiana, Illinois and Missouri, and into Kansas, and by stage in several states. While she condemns the actions and morals of some of her fellow passengers (for dancing, swearing, tipling and incivility), she presents a good description of public behaviour, attitudes, manners and customs of her time. Her travels eventually brought the author to the Old Shawnees [Methodist] Mission School, near the present town of Turner, in Wyandotte County, Kansas. There she taught in 1848 and 1850, and there she gathered materials for her sketches of Indian customs, scenes and activities."
