A great more "modern"perspective on the Lewis and Clark journey by a great author Dayton Duncan! His ability to use the original journals from the expedition to guide his own journey provides a unique and very entertaining read for both avid history readers and those looking for some more travel oriented but with a history perspective.

Duncan chronicles his travels along the Lewis and Clark trail. He observes the changes from the time of the Corps of Discovery, both alterations to the landscape and changes to the people that live there. As with all such observations, it is the land itself that is celebrated. An interesting and absorbing read.

I read this book because I enjoyed Duncan's 'Miles From Nowhere' so much. I'm not any sort of Lewis and Clark buff and doubt this book will appeal to scholars or those with a serious interest in the matter. But for me it served as an entirely enjoyable and readable introduction to the 1802 expedition. Be aware that this is a travel book and discusses the author's experiences as much as it does Lewis and Clark's.
