From the Publisher"[T]his encyclopedia is a timely addition to the literature on the subject. . . The timeliness of this encyclopedia and the breadth of coverage make it an important reference book. Overall, this will be an excellent resource for high-school, public, and academic libraries."
"[T]his large, authoritative volume offers much more than its title suggests. . . .Highly recommended for all public and academic libraries."
"A comprehensive historical and geographical resource on the events, personalities, and institutions connected with the Louisiana Purchase and the subsequent westward expansion of the U.S. . . . This is a meticulous, scholarly work that will undoubtedly be welcomed for its voluminous facts on the period especially during next year's bicentennial of the Louisiana Purchase."
School Library Journal
"How have librarians managed without this encyclopedia, which fills not a niche but a serious (if perhaps unrecognized) lacuna in American history reference collections? . . . The impending bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark Expedition makes this an excellent purchase for all libraries."
"Attractive, user friendly, ably written, and well documented, this sourcebook is a recommended purchase for the reference section of high school and college libraries."
American Reference Books Annual
"This encyclopedia includes information about more than the Louisiana Purchase. . . it literally covers the opening of the West. . . could find a home in either reference or circulating collections. It is worthy of consideration by high school, public and undergraduate libraries."
