Excerpt from Audubon and His Journals, Vol. 2

We came to an aperture in the chain of hills, from which this river, which was very high, issues. On the north side of the mouth there was a steep, yellow clay wall; and on the southern a flat, covered with poplars and willows. This river has its name from the Singular regular sandstone balls which are found in its banks, and in those of the Missouri in its vicinity. They are of various sizes, from that of a musket ball to that of a large bomb, and lie irregularly on the bank, or in the strata, from which they often project to half their thickness; when the river has washed away the earth they then fall down, and are found in great numbers on the bank. Many of them are rather elliptical, others are more flattened, others flat on one side and convex on the other. Of the perfectly rp/zeriml balls, I observed some two feet in diameter. A mile above the mouth of Cannon Ball River I saw no more of them. (travels in North America, p. 167, Maximilian, Prince of Wied.)
