His southern route brought him through Maryland, Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia, and Alabama. He also travelled south via the Mississippi through Louisiana, and north to Quebec; his route is traced on the map. "His work contains many excellent descriptions of places and conditions that came under his observation" (Clark), including Creek Indian ceremonies, and navigating the Mississippi.
