A year later, Stuart led a seven-man party overland to obtain desperately needed supplies and support from Astor, who had seemingly forgotten them. Travelling from west to east, Stuart and his rag-tag expedition journeyed through uncharted country, enduring near starvation (Stuart had to prevent one man from devouring his weakened companion), illness, Indian attacks, blinding blizzards and weeks of sub-zero temperatures. Nevertheless, due largely to Stuart's courage, restraint and extraordinary endurance, all of the men made it safely back to St. Louis.
