Schoolcraft's Ozark Journey


Sunday, December 6th, 1818

Travelled sixteen miles west-south-west, across a rocky ridge of land, and encamped on a pretty large stream running south, from which we conclude it is discharged into White River. Face of the country very rough, lands sterile, timber oak, and very scanty; weather very mild and pleasant for the season.
