An obscure undertaking in its time, the Lewis and Clark expedition grew in the American imagination, acquiring an almost mythic stature. This book presents an examination of the explorers' world and the complicated ways in which it relates to ours. It contains essays that look at the global geopolitics that provided the context for the expedition.
