In 1831, Pattie collaborated with Timothy Flint to publish The Personal Narrative of James O. Pattie of Kentucky, which described his travels through what is now the Western United States and Mexico.
The actor Donald Barton (1925-2002) played Pattie in the 1959 episode, "Price of a Passport", on the syndicated television anthology series, Death Valley Days, hosted by Stanley Andrews. Howard Wright (1896-1990) portrayed Pattie's father, Sylvester Pattie (1782-1828), the first American to be buried in California, long before statehood. In the episode, the Patties arrive in California to trap for furs but are ordered to jail by a superstitious Mexican governor, played by Rodolfo Hoyos Jr. A young woman named Carlotta (Arianne Ulmer) befriends them in jail. Ultimately, their medical knowledge benefits the community during an epidemic.
