KLIATTEvery now and again a book comes along that is just too beautiful to pass up. This is one such book. It follows the Lewis and Clark Expedition, dogging their footsteps from an aerial perspective. Each photo is accompanied by a full-page quotation from the explorers' diaries, and if you are interested in the great feat, the book is stunning. About half the scenes show the great cities and bridges that have sprung up along the route, making the old expedition recede ever farther in the past. Whether the doughty frontiersmen would have welcomed the progress and conveniences, one cannot say. But the rest of the scenes are from the virgin wilderness, and the land that they undoubtedly cursed and struggled through is beautiful beyond compare to modern eyes. KLIATT Codes: SA*—Exceptional book, recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2004, Mountain Press, 261p. illus. bibliog. index., Ages 15 to adult.
