Editorial Reviews

Choice

"Particularly valuable for Ronda's inclusion of pertinent background information about the various tribes and for his ethnological analysis. An appendix also places the Sacagawea myth in its proper perspective. Gracefully written, the book bridges the gap between academic and general audiences."—Choice
William and Mary Quarterly

"James P. Ronda in Lewis and Clark among the Indians has drawn from the journals and other documents a compelling narrative of the expedition's encounters with the Indians. It is a story of discovery and suspense, and it is told with a modern concern to understand the Indian side as well as the white in the meeting of the two cultures."—William and Mary Quarterly
Ethnohistory

"A welcome and progressive volume in the growing literature on the significance of America's most famous exploratory trek. James Ronda retraces the trail of Lewis and Clark and provides a refreshing context to an event in U.S. history that has become part of our national mythology. . . . He also gives faces and personalities to the many native leaders and their kinsmen and kinswomen who hosted, traded with, slept with, and on occasion scrapped with the expeditionaries."—Ethnohistory
American Indian Quarterly

"This book is an important contribution to Indian ethnohistory and to the literature of the Lewis and Clark expedition."—American Indian Quarterly
