Excerpts
Washington Irving's
Tour on the Prairies
1832
————————————
"It seems to me as if these
beautiful regions answer
literally to the description
of the land of promise, "a land
flowing with milk and honey."
"If you keep along yonder,
by the edge of the prairie,
you will come to a bald hill,
with a pile of stones upon it."
"Well, those stones were set
up by the Osages as a landmark:
from that spot you may
have a sight of the Red Fork."
"As the night advanced, we
perceived above the trees
to the west, a ruddy glow
flushing up the sky."
"It is at the Red Fork,"
(Cimarron River) said Beatte,
regarding the sky. "It seems
but three miles distant, yet
it perhaps is twenty."
