Summary
"Across the sea of grass" traces the journey of Lewis and Clark and other early pioneers of the land beyond the Mississippi who made their way across the plains that were home to buffalo, grizzly bears and tribes of Mandan, Sioux, and Pawnee. It shows how thousands of determined settlers turned the wild lands into wheat fields and why the destruction of the buffalo herds had such an impact on the Indian population.
