Description of the subject depicted in the print: The engraving depicts a scene described by an explorer in the 1850s in his journal: "The Mohaves had now been acquainted with us several days, and having brought everything they could think of to barter, at last bit on the notion of offering us fish. The first that they produced, being a rare as well as favorite dish with our company, were extremely well paid; but when the rumor spread among the Indians that we did not disdain this article of commerce, the camp was immediately overwhelmed with them, and, of course, from the glut of the market the price of the goods fell considerably. This the sellers could by no means understand ... Towards evening, as we stood watching the course of the swift stream that we had to cross, and looking over to the opposite shore, we perceived groups of black heads bobbing up out of the water ; which heads we found belonged to families of Indians, swimming back to their dwellings with their wives and children. One group especially attracted my attention. It consisted of a young, woman, who had very quietly and innocently disencumbered herself of her petticoat in our presence and folding it up laid her baby upon it in a little flat but strongly made basket, and with this under her arm, a little thing of about four years old held by the hand, and two elder children of seven or eight following her, had taken to the water, pushing the baby in basket before her, and giving a glance backward occasionally at the two youngsters, who were romping and splashing about as they followed in the track she made on the surface of the water. I watched them as they landed on the small island, walked quickly across it, and then plunged into the river again on the other side. It was a pretty family picture: even among heathen savages the sweet and holy affections of nature bear witness to its divine origin! " The next day, the Indians helped the group cross the river, the scene being illustrated on the engraving below. Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy !
