This is a record of Irvings expedition to the western parts of the country. He has captured the essence of the area through his exquisite descriptions. He has given a romantic depiction of the adventure and expeditions that he undertook while in the suburbs of Oklahoma.
Nothing, however, could restrain the romantic ardor of the Count for a campaign of buffalo hunting with the Osages, and he had a game spirit that seemed always stimulated by the idea of danger. His travelling companion, of discreeter age and calmer temperament, was convinced of the rashness of the enterprise; but he could not control the impetuous zeal of his youthful friend.
