The Fate of the Corps: What Became of the Lewis and Clark Explorers After the Expedition by Larry Morris

The story of the Lewis and Clark Expedition has been told many times. But what became of the thirty-three members of the Corps of Discovery once the expedition was over? The expedition ended in 1806, and the final member of the Corps passed away in 1870. In the intervening decades, members of the Corps witnessed the momentous events of the nation they helped to form-from the War of 1812 to the Civil War and the opening of the transcontinental railroad. Some of the expedition members went on to hold public office; two were charged with murder. Many of the explorers could not resist the call of the wild, and continued to adventure forth into America's western frontier. Engagingly written and based on exhaustive research, The Fate of the Corps chronicles the lives of the fascinating men (and one woman) who opened the American West.

Lewis and Clark = what HASN'T been written about them? Read this. There are nuggets here. It's technical in the detail but obscure facts do come out. It isn't in the manner or a start to finish trek. You're going to get side tracked by meticulous research, but you are going to know what you are reading isn't "made up", "developed", and "opinion". The facts of the smallest items are laid out in detail. If you want more details on Americas greatest hikers = it's here. If you want adventure reading, this probably isn't the best read. Astounding details!
