Originally published in 1750, Robert de Vaugondy shows a northwest passage as "Detroit d Anian" or Strait of Anian. The Missouri River comes in from the west north of present day New Mexico. A "Belle Riviere" is to the north and flows west to the "River of the west" which enters the Pacific at the "Partie Nord-ouest de l'Amerique". The west is labelled "Allies des Sioux".
