Overview

It has been 200 years since their epic trek across Western America, yet Lewis and Clark still evoke strong emotions. For good or ill, the captains redefined America's sense of identity, and interest is at an all-time high in reexamining their expedition and its effects. Timed for publication amid the four-year bicentennial celebration of their journey, this book retraces the path taken by Lewis and Clark and their Corps of Discovery from 1804 to 1806. The author draws on the explorers’ journals and period illustrations for historical context, and complements this material with modern color photography from the roads and rivers along the trail blazed by Lewis and Clark. Readers will also hear from history enthusiasts who are enamored by the explorers’ feats as well as from those who view Lewis and Clark as villains.
