Extremely prolific, like Butler, Thwaites wrote other books on western Indians, rivers, and exploration besides his multi-volume western travels series whose various accounts include references to transportation in Maryland and Baltimore. Frederick Jackson Turner delivered a memorial address on Thwaites in 1916.
