Read an Excerpt

Excerpt from the introduction of Lewis and Clark among the Grizzlies:
"For two hundred years now, students have been pondering what biologist Daniel Botkin has called the lessons of Lewis and Clark. Some of these students were brilliant, some were reckless, some didn't have a clue. Many found only the lessons they wanted to find, many others didn't even realize the lessons were there. Here on the eve of the two hundredth anniversary of the expedition, we are more conscious than ever before of just how important those lessons might be. So besides letting you hear the voices of Lewis, Clark, Gass, Ordway, and the other journalists who described their harrowing, fascinating, comic experiences with grizzly bears, I hope to share with you some of the voices they inspired.
