Overview

Photographer Richard Mack has brought the vistas and majesty of the Lewis & Clark Trail to life in a magnificent set of 248 color photographs. Richard spent two years visiting key locations along the Lewis & Clark Trail - by plane, auto, and on foot - shooting specific locations at the same time of year as was originally experienced. The result is an extraordinary set of images capturing the incredible diversity of the American landscape in different seasons. The Lewis & Clark Expedition - also known as the Corps of Discovery - is regarded as one of the epic stories in American history. The trail stretches across the American landscape starting in St. Louis and follows the Missouri River through the woodlands of the Midwest, out onto the Great Plains before crossing Montana, entering the Bitterroot Mountains in Idaho, and gliding down the Clearwater, Snake, and Columbia rivers to the Pacific Ocean. The pioneering exploits of the Corps of Discovery have been thoroughly chronicled in thousands of pages of narrative by historians as well as in the journals of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. These words have helped capture in riveting and descriptive detail the sense of discovery and, in particular, the wonder of viewing untouched landscapes and various species of animals for the first time. Unfortunately, the only "pictures" from this expedition were those painted by the words and drawings of Lewis & Clark. Until now. For those interested in the Lewis & Clark Expedition specifically and American history in general, this book is an invaluable supplement to the narrative works in their collection. For those who are simply awestruck by the splendor of nature or the power of photography, this once-in-a-lifetime collection of images will be a treasured addition to their library.

    More than a coffee table book - a book to get lost in.

    I was not a Lewis & Clark buff until I opened this book that sat on a friend's coffee table as all books like this seem to do. After a quick thumb through, I was immediately taken in and made time to actually read it. The images are outstanding and the copy was a history class reviewed. Thanks Richard Mack- go do this again.

    A Stunning Visual Portrayal

    Richard Mack¿s, The Lewis & Clark Trail, is a stunning visual portrayal of the Corps of Discovery¿s expedition. Anyone with a modest interest in the story of Lewis and Clark needs to have this collection of photographs. By visiting the sites along the expedition¿s route, Mr. Mack¿s photographs vividly bring to life its spectacular scenery. His unique perspective provides us with images which are within a few weeks of the time of year when Lewis and Clark traversed the landscape. His photographs of the winter camp at Ft. Mandan, North Dakota, give life to the adage, ¿A picture is worth a thousand words.¿ Having grown up along the trail in northeastern Montana, I can attest that no written account can bring to life the winters on the Northern Plains like the photographs in The Lewis & Clark Trail. My favorite pictures, of course, are along the majestic prairie though North Dakota and Montana. However, anyone who has lived along or visited the expedition¿s trail will find their own favorite pictures in Mr. Mack¿s collection.

Everyone will enjoy this book!

    Amazing photography!

    Bought this book as a gift for a friend at an author's signing and it is gorgeous. My friend was thrilled since he had travelled much of the Trail himself over the years. Decided later to get one for myself and really glad I did...sits proudly in my office and anyone who picks it up thinks it's great! The author/photographer knows his stuff!!

    They have a new book coming out next month of musician portraits and I can't wait to get mine...looks beautiful!

    Unbelievable!

    This is a fine book! It is a collection of photographs which span almost an entire continent and give you a history lesson in the process! One of the most visually stimulating books I have seen, it sits now on my coffee table were everyone opens it just to pass the time, and becomes engrossed in it! It is the kind of book you will keep out in the open so you can thumb threw it over and over again. And in the process you will learn some of the American history as you never could have seen it before. Richard Mack has done an extraordinariy job of bringing history to life. This is one of my favorite books and I can not wait for more from him! Thanks Richard!
