   schema:description ""The Land between the Rivers details the unremitting weather and rugged geography of uncharted lands within the Louisiana Territory. A sense of discovery pervades the narrative as Nuttall's odyssey builds to its climax in the prairie wilderness of what is now Oklahoma. Sickened by "ague"--In his case, malaria - Nuttall at times was barely able to go on, yet he continued to search for and catalog plants and animals." "The Land between the Rivers expands our knowledge of the work of one of the country's earliest botanists. We also learn a great deal about the early explorers, the inhabitants of the unsettled land, and the land and culture of the times."--Jacket."@en ;
