I am currently reading the Journal of Jacob Fowler, who went through the southwest in 1821-23. Throughout the journal, he talks about shooting and eating Caberey, or Cabrey. I found one site on the net that interpreted this as antelope. I have never heard of this term. His spelling and grammar is horrible, so I have no idea how Caberey would really be pronounced. The C could be hard or soft.

Any of you familiar with this term for antelope?

I see goat in Spanish is cabra, maybe that is what he is writing. Lots of Spanish/Mexican influence in that area for sure. Thanks.

Sounds like an interesting read. What format are you reading it in? I see Amazon has hardcover available for over $200, paperback for $20, and Kindle for free. I'm thinking of doing the Kindle version with illustrations although I prefer bound books.

I downloaded it from Project Gutenberg web site. They have it in kindle format too. I used plain html.
