    Superbly Illustrated and Documented from Primary Sources

    An excellent source for historically accurate clothing of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Using primary source documents and period drawings, along with the art of Michael Haynes, expedition members are brought to life with this timely work. There are some discrepancies, but overall there are no major complaints. Personally, I wish more effort would have been made to research expedition weapons, one area in the book that falls short. For example, the myth of the 'M1792 contract long rifle pattern' persists (parts on these rifles date from 1812). Also, no real effort is made to document the use of the Model 1803 'short rifle' by the expedition (as recorded in the journals by Lewis and Ordway). Some of the clothing info was previously published by 'The Company of Military Historians' in 1951 and 1994, but Moore's research efforts to uncover more documentation are commendable. Hopefully Lewis and Clark enthusiasts and reenactor's will use this book to improve their sometimes silly buckskinning persona's. A definite 'must buy' for any serious Lewis and Clark enthusiast.
