Photographer Richard Mack has brought the vistas and majesty of the Lewis & Clark Trail to life in a magnificent set of 248 color photographs. Richard spent two years visiting key locations along the Lewis & Clark Trail – by plane, auto, and on foot – shooting specific locations at the same time of year as was originally experienced. The result is an extraordinary set of images capturing the incredible diversity of the American landscape in different seasons. The Lewis & Clark Expedition – also known as the Corps of Discovery – is regarded as one of the epic stories in American history. The trail stretches across the American landscape starting in St. Louis and follows the Missouri River through the woodlands of the Midwest, out onto the Great Plains before crossing Montana, entering the Bitterroot Mountains in Idaho, and gliding down the Clearwater, Snake, and Columbia rivers to the Pacific Ocean. The pioneering exploits of the Corps of Discovery have been thoroughly chronicled in thousands of pages of narrative by historians as well as in the journals of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. These words have helped capture in riveting and descriptive detail the sense of discovery and, in particular, the wonder of viewing untouched landscapes and various species of animals for the first time. Unfortunately, the only “pictures” from this expedition were those painted by the words and drawings of Lewis & Clark. Until now. For those interested in the Lewis & Clark Expedition specifically and American history in general, this book is an invaluable supplement to the narrative works in their collection. For those who are simply awestruck by the splendor of nature or the power of photography, this once-in-a-lifetime collection of images will be a treasured addition to their library.

The Lewis and Clark expedition was the greatest camping trip in history. It was one of those irresistible American adventures that many people dream of living. This book shares the delightful details of the journey that historians have gleaned from the group’s journals and maps, and also discusses what’s known of the Indian perspective of the expedition. Throughout the book, you find out about Jefferson’s western exploration from his earliest efforts to see the Corps assembled through the aftermath for the explorers, the tribes, and the United States. But the focus of Lewis & Clark For Dummies is on the period between Jefferson’s confidential letter to Congress requesting dollars to mount a western exploration (January 18,1803) and the expedition’s triumphant (and improbable) return to St. Louis (September 23, 1806): forty-two months that changed the world. Join Lewis and Clark as they recruit the Corps of Discovery, meet Sacagawea and various Indian tribes, and set off along the Missouri River on a thrilling, perilous journey. Lewis & Clark For Dummies also covers the following topics and more: The expedition’s people and places Jefferson’s fascination with the West Final preparations of Meriwether Lewis Weathering storms to launch the expedition The discomforts and dangers of the journey Making maps and writing reports A first look at the Pacific Ocean The story of Lewis and Clark doesn’t end with their return to St. Louis.

A lively and thoroughly researched novel of Lewis and Clark’s nineteenth century adventures, including journal entries from Lewis’s loyal dog, Seaman. In 1804, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark set forth to explore and map the West, forging a trade route to the Pacific coast. Though their adventures and contributions to American history are well known, a vital member of their team was nearly forgotten by time. Amid the soldiers, cartographers, and boatmen, one particular explorer in The Corps of Discovery stands out: Seaman, Captain Lewis’s Newfoundland dog. Seaman is more than a just a companion. He is a skilled hunter, a talented scout, and a fierce guardian, frequently risking his own life to save his master’s. Along with Seaman, Sacajawea, and the intrepid pioneers in their party, Lewis and Clark face countless dangers—starvation, deadly storms, and hostile tribes—as they attempt to achieve President Jefferson’s ambitious assignment. Based on expedition journals and other historical documents, Trail is a gripping retelling of a true American adventure that vividly captures the inspiration, courage, and imagination of the Westward Expansion.

When the Lewis and Clark Expedition crossed a continent in 1803 to 1806, they started out in U.S. Army uniforms, which gradually had to be replaced with simple leather garments. For parts of those uniforms, only a single drawing, pattern, or example survives. Historian Moore and artist Haynes have researched archives and museums to locate and verify what the men wore, and Haynes has painted and sketched the clothing in scenes of the trip. Also included are Indian styles the men adopted, and the wardrobes of the Creole interpreters and the French boatmen. Weapons and accessories round out this complete record of what the expedition wore or carried--and why. A great reference for artists, living history performers, museums, and military historians.
