This map features 'die Lynn', a mountain also referred to in the Winnetou III chapter 'In California' (although it is not quite accurate); Mt Linn is an obscure landscape feature and not shown on many maps of the era

This map shows both  Mt Joseph, and Mt Linn

Other maps of interest:

May used the expression 'Savannah', instead of 'Prairie' quite often; notwithstanding that Captain Fremont did so, too, German maps of May's era featured great swathes of 'Savannen' in some spots:
