This book is an excellent companion to anyone wishing to learn more about Lewis and Clark's first winter camp. Most versions of the Lewis and Clark journals begin on the day the party left there first winter camp, Camp River Dubois. Readers can now gain a greater understanding of the months of preparation and hard work Lewis and Clark endured prior to the start of their historic expedition. Without the months of leadership, training and preparation that took place at Camp River Dubois, it is doubtful the expedition would have succeeded as well as it did. You will leave with a better understanding of how Lewis and most particularly Clark took this group of individuals and forged them into a cohesive unit, which we know of today as the Corps of Discovery. By including both the expedition¿s journals and letters dealing the with the months Lewis and Clark were encamped at Camp River Dubois, Mr. Raymer has given his audience a one volume resource that previously could have only been attained through buying multiple works. The author also adds a very interesting twist to the debate over the camp¿s actually location today. This book is a welcome addition to anyone¿s Lewis and Clark library.
