We rested above an hour in the cool shade, while our horses refreshed themselves on the “grama” that grew luxuriantly around.
There the grama grass is longer and more luxuriant than in the immediate neighbourhood of the spring.

This is the "grama" or "buffalo-grass," and, despite its look of utter desiccation, is highly nutritious.
The hills beyond became naked, or covered only with short grass of the grama kind and dusty-gray sage-brush.
They ruled over villages (grama), and fortified walled places (pura), of which overseers are mentioned (gramani, purpati).
Somewhere off to the east, miles and miles beyond the red sea of sand and grama grass, lay Home.
The grass, consisting of several varieties of the grama, is of a superior quality, and grows luxuriantly.
The second kind is the Grama grass, which is, I believe, indigenous to only this section of America.
