BeschreibungPresident Thomas Jefferson conceived the Corps of Discovery to travel up the Missouri River to the Rocky Mountains and westward along possible river routes to the Pacific Ocean. Meriwether Lewis and William Clark led the expedition of 1804-6. Along the way they filled hundreds of notebook pages with observations of the geography, Indian tribes, and natural history of the trans-Mississippi West.
PortraitGary E. Moulton is Thomas C. Sorensen Professor of American History at the University of Nebraska and the recipient of the J. Franklin Jameson Award of the American Historical Association for the editing of these journals.
Pressestimmen"For almost two hundred years [Lewis and Clark's] strong words waited, there but not there, printed but not read: our silent epic. But words can wait: now the captains' writings have at last spilled out, and fully, in this regal edition."-Larry McMurtry, New York Review of Books.
