soil rich, and covered with a heavy growth of trees.

Current's River is one of the principal tributaries of Black River, and is a stream of 250 miles in length, and affords, in its whole course, extensive bodies of fertile land.

I found this book very interesting. It is a Journal of a travel into the Eastern Ozarks of the new little explored Louisiana Purchase.

I recommend this book, it allows you to almost step back to an earlier era when the country was new and unexplored.
