More About This Book

Overview

The Journey
On May 14, 1804, the Lewis and Clark Expedition rowed 4 miles up the Missouri River, beginning their epic journey to the Pacific. Eighteen months and 4,000 miles later, 31 men, one woman, and a baby reached the Pacific Ocean.

On June 13, 2002, almost 200 years later, Bob and Mike Webster climbed into their homebuilt airplane and began their flight following the footsteps of Lewis and Clark.

What's in the Book
Lewis and Clark by Air documents the expedition's route to the Pacific with more than 500 photographs and 350 excerpts from the journals of the expedition members. Consider the 200-year-old impressions of these explorers as you view the very same country they traveled. The contrast between now and 200 years ago is striking; the lack of change over the past 200 years is even more impressive in some cases.

The Photographs
Each photograph in this book has with it the date the expedition passed that point and the number of miles they had traveled to that point. This book is enjoyable to read, interesting, and highly informative.

Free CD Free Lewis and Clark Explorer software is included with the book. With Lewis and Clark Explorer, you can view photos of the Lewis and Clark Trail along with the original Lewis and Clark Journal entries for any day or mile range. You can also select an area on the map and view the photos and journal entries. Results can be printed, saved, or exported to a web page.

    A Unique View of Lewis and Clark

    This book combines the old with the new, modern aerial photographs documenting Lewis and Clark's Exploration side-by-side with journal entries from Lewis, Clark, and other members of the expedition. Documentation is excellent, with Lewis and Clark dates and miles for each photograph. Journal entries in the book have been 'cleaned up' with grammatical and spelling corrections. Software for viewing photos with the complete journals is included on a CD.

    A Unique and Informative Adventure

    Inside the front cover of the book it tells about Lewis and Clark beginning their journey up the Missouri River to the Pacific. Eighteen months and 4,000 miles later they reached the Pacific ocean. Almost 200 years later Bob and Mike Webster climbed into their homebuilt airplane and followed the footsteps of Lewis and Clark. It was a unique adventure, highly informative and a great source of history. There are more than 500 photographs in the book and 350 excerpts from the journals of Lewis and Clark and members of the expedition. Each photograph has with it the date the expedition passed that point many years ago. The Aircam which Bob and Mike flew has an open cockpit, two seats, and two 'pusher' engines. It cruises at 60 to 80 mph. On page 266 it tells all about the plane and shows 'work in progress' photos while the Aircam was being built. I found this book very interesting and enjoyable to read.
