Synopsis by Alice Day
In the continuing saga about the effects that the early European settlers had on the North American wilderness and native American culture, Land of the Eagle Vol. 4: "Across the Sea of Grass" follows Lewis and Clark as they journey across the plains. The vast lands beyond the Mississippi were habitats for buffalo, antelope, and grizzlies, as well as the Pawnee, Sioux, and Manadan Indians whose livelihood depended on these animals. The Indians had a spiritual connection with nature, and lived in harmony according to its seasons and laws. The wholesale slaughter of buffalo herds impacted native American existence forever.
