It is bounded on the N by Platter., E by the Missouri r. and state, s by the Red r, and w by the desert country sometimes called the “Great American Desert.” It is about 600 m. in extent from N to s, and 400 or 500 from E to w. A large portion of the territory is prairie, but the margins of the streams are generally lined with wood. All the productions of the U. S. of the same latitude can be raised here, and the country seems to be also exceedingly well adapted for grazing.
