This chapter presents Lewis and Clark's observations about the landscape during the first part of their journey from St. Charles to the Kansas River, in what is now the state of Missouri. Clark described a place called “Prariee of Arrows”, which was below a bluff called “Arrow Rock” and where a stream called the “Creek of Arrows” flowed into the Missouri. Lewis studied the plants used by Indians as food.
