Lewis and Clark: Voyage of Discovery (Bicentennial Edition)by Stephen E. Ambrose
Lewis and Clark's Voyage of Discovery defined the American spirit like no other event of the 19th century. Now, in celebration of its bicentennial, Stephen E. Ambrose offers a refreshing look at the explorers and their legendary journey in this IMAX® bicentennial edition of Lewis & Clark: Voyage of Discovery. In a new illustrated introduction, Ambrose talks about the making of the film and its significance in commemorating and documenting the expedition, and the land it crossed, 200 years later. Voyage of Discovery is an exceptional work of history and photography that National Geographic is proud to feature in coordination with the National Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Council and their celebration of 2003-2006.
Changed by time but timeless in its inspiration, the Lewis and Clark Trail comes to life through Stephen E. Ambrose's inspired narrative, rich commentary, personal selections from the explorers's journals, and an accompaniment of stunning new photographs that exhibit the undying beauty of the American West. National Geographic photographer Sam Abell presents an array of compelling modern images from the Missouri to the Pacific Coast that offset rare historic photos, art, and mapssome sketched by Lewis and Clark themselves.
