Forty Years Among the Indians was published by the Juvenile Instructor Press in 1890 and written by Daniel Webster Jones. It is described on its Title Page as "A True yet Thrilling Narrative of the Author's Experiences among the Natives." In it, Jones writes his autobiography, detailing his conversion to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, his experiences during the rescue of the handcart companies during the winter of 1856, his work with the Native Americans and Mexican people, and the early settlement of what became Mesa, Arizona. It is a valuable resource for historians and storytellers in describing events and conditions in Western and Mormon American history.
