"Clarks' Journal is full of detail of every day from August 25 when he started with the dragoons from St. Charles until his return to St. Louis on September twenty-second. The forty-two pages of this record bristle with descriptions of cross country Missouri - its forests, prairies, game, coal, springs - fresh and salt - navigability of streams, fertility of soil, and suitability for, settlement. And inasmuch as this is the first American description by land of Missouri from east and west must ever have considerable importance, quite aside of what it tells us of the founding of Fort Osage, extreme western outpost of American government for twenty years." - p. 8.
