Donald Jackson has written this account of the Yellow Stone primarily from business records of the Chouteau family in the archives of the Missouri Historical Society, St. Louis, and from the voluminous records of the War for Texas Independence. A fuller account may be found in his book Voyages of the Steamboat Yellow Stone , which has recently been issued in paperback by the University of Oklahoma Press.
