This chapter recounts the experiences and observations of Lewis and Clark as they traveled across what is now Kansas City, Missouri. The expedition saw buffalo, which they did not kill, but which indicated that they had entered a second ecological region, the tall-grass prairie, and left behind the eastern deciduous forests of Missouri. The ecological landscape, potential for agriculture, agriculture and water quality, the Konza Prairie, beaver and fur trade, and buffalo on the prairie are discussed.

Keywords:   Lewis, Clark, expedition, tall-grass prairie, Kansas, beaver, fur trade, buffalo
