Description: When Thomas Jefferson's proteges Meriwether Lewis and William Clark completed their epic journey to the Pacific Ocean in 1806, they had effectively opened the continent to the settling of the lands beyond the Mississippi River. Here is a lavishly illustrated (150 images) record of this extraordinary event, with an engaging text written by historian Dayton Duncan.

Sprinkled liberally throughout are excerpts from the journals kept not only by the captains but by others in the Corps: loving descriptions of the Western landscape; complaints about gnats, prickly pears, and mosquitoes ("our great trio of pests, equal to any three curses that ever poor Egypt labored under" -- Meriwether Lewis); accounts of encounters with Indians, both amicable and harrowing; introductions to two of the most fascinating characters on the expedition, the Shoshone woman Sacagawea and Clark's slave York, both of whom participate as equals in the Corps's remarkably democratic decision-making process; vivid depictions of hunger, numbing cold, loneliness, and excitement.
