Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Palliser was an Irish-born geographer and explorer. Born in Dublin, Ireland, he was the son of Colonel Wray Palliser and a brother of Major Sir William Palliser, all descendants of Dr William Palliser, Archbishop of Cashel. From 1839 to 1863, Palliser served in the Waterford Militia, eventually with the rank of captain. He was also sheriff of Waterford. His first hunting expedition was in North America in 1847 during which time, Palliser wrote Solitary Rambles and Adventures of a Hunter in the Prairies, first published in 1853. He travelled back to Rupert's Land as leader of the British North American Exploring Expedition, which travelled over the uncharted regions of the far west between 1857 and 1861. He made a topographical delimitation of the boundary between British North America and the United States, from Lake Superior to the coast of the Pacific Oceanshow more
