Quotes
“And now the solider toiled upward through an extremely steep ascent over rock outcroppings and ravines. At the top, they saw something few white men had ever seen: the preternaturally flat expanse of the high plains, covered only with short buffalo grass. ‘As far as the eye could reach, wrote Carter, ‘not an object of any kind or living thing was in sight. It stretched out before us–one uninterrupted plain, only to be compared with the ocean in its vastness. ‘The scene was terrifying even for men with experience of the plains. ‘This is a terrible country,’ railroad worker Arthur Ferguson had written a few years earlier, ‘the stillness, wilderness, and desolation of which is awful…Not a tree to be seen… and it seemed as if the solitude had been eternal.”  S._C._Gwynne
