Engraving "Crossing the Plains," 1853

Below is a scan of an etching called "Crossing The Plains: Views Drawn From Nature, In 1853, By George H. Baker" which I found folded up in an old book.  It contains illustrations of wagon trains, indians, and famous rock formations in the American West.  I googled the copyright listed at the bottom of the sheet, and found that the Online Archive of California has the same engraving on their website, but in a slightly worse condition.
