Arkansas Post, the first European settlement in what would become Jefferson's Louisiana, had an important mission as the only settlement between Natchez and the Illinois Country, a stretch of more than eight hundred miles along the Mississippi River. The Post was a stopping point for shelter and supplies for those travelling by boat or land, and it was of strategic importance as well, as it nurtured and sustained a crucial alliance with the Quapaw Indians, the only tribe that occupied the region.

The Arkansas Post of Louisiana covers the most essential aspects of the Post's history, including the nature of the European population, their social life, the economy, the architecture, and the political and military events that reflected and shaped the Post's mission.

Beautifully illustrated with maps, portraits, lithographs, photographs, documents, and superb examples of Quapaw hide paintings, The Arkansas Post of Louisiana is a perfect introduction to this fascinating place at the confluence of the Arkansas and Mississippi Rivers, a place that served as a multicultural gathering spot, and became a seminal part of the history of Arkansas and the nation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A cultural history where many people undoubtedly thought there was no culture... Morris S. Arnold has incisively combined indigenous, French, and Spanish threads to produce a remarkable gem. It will serve as a model for historians who wish to explore their own states' past."
--Gilbert C. Din, winner of the Williams Prize of the Historic New Orleans Collection
